About our School

The Crossroads Center is a Baltimore County Public Schools’ alternative program center that provides educational and social/emotional services to students in grades seven to ten who can benefit from additional support both academically and behaviorally. Our program focuses academically on reading and mathematics in the four core subject areas, reading/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Behaviorally, the focus is on improving deportment through positive interventions and supports.  This one-year, full-day, program was designed to assist students in increasing their proficiency in reading and mathematics so they will successfully complete the requirements needed to earn a high school diploma.

The Crossroads Center is uniquely designed for this program.  It consists of five learning communities.  Each community is staffed with 10 adults to assist all students in progressing in reading, writing, and math through the four core subject areas.  Using high quality curriculum with strong technology support, students will engage in exploring the content through personal, community, and world prospectives.  The learning communities are supported by the principal, two assistant principals, counselors, social workers, a pupil personnel worker, a school resource officer, and a school nurse.  After one year and successfully completing this program, students will return to their home schools with support systems to ensure their continued academic progress.
