Building on our success with Crossroads Academy – Central Street and Crossroads Academy – Quality Hill, both of which have generated a groundswell of demand from the community, Crossroads Charter Schools will open Crossroads Preparatory Academy in downtown Kansas City in August 2018!

Crossroads Charter Schools was founded with the intent of reducing the gap between the number of “high quality seats” in classrooms within the Kansas City Public School boundaries, and the number of children seeking those seats. In our short history, our students have made strong academic gains and our school has built an excellent reputation among the community as a place of high quality instruction and innovation in learning. 

Crossroads Preparatory Academy will open with 190 scholars in 7th - 10th grade.  The school will serve 600 students in 7th - 12th grade when it reaches capacity in 2025. 

The Crossroads Preparatory Academy model will put the students in the driver’s seat of their learning, anchoring personalized, project-based learning experiences within the “Downtown KC” classroom. The school will offer a full complement of academically rigorous courses, electives, and extracurricular activities.

All students who graduate 6th grade from Crossroads Charter Schools have guaranteed admission into Crossroads Preparatory Academy  and additional openings will be available for students across the downtown region and KCPS boundaries. With our welcoming school culture we seek to foster a diverse student population that reflects the racial, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of our larger community. 

The founding class began courses in fall 2017 as Crossroads High School in  our temporary home in the Park University Downtown Campus within Commerce Tower.  Crossroads announced the name change to Crossroads Preparatory Academy at the same time we announced the  permanent home for the school - The Thayer building located at 816 Broadway.  The Crossroads Preparatory Academy campus will open in August 2018!

Together with our downtown community, Crossroads Charter Schools is making a significant impact in downtown Kansas City. We are excited and humbled by the opportunity to extend the opportunities of a Crossroads education to students in the upper grades.
