The Crossroads School
The Crossroads School is a public, tuition-free charter middle school operated by Living Classrooms Foundation on its East Harbor Campus through a contract with the Baltimore City Public School System. The school, which opened its doors in September 2002, draws students from five East Baltimore elementary schools, and currently serves 150 students in 6th through 8th grades. These students come from poverty stricken neighborhoods, where each of the surrounding middle schools is on the "reconstitution eligible" list for schools that are in danger of being reorganized by the Maryland State Department of Education. Of our current student population, more than 90% are Title I students, and are therefore eligible for free or reduced lunches.
The Crossroads School prides itself on being a "school of choice" whereby students, families, and teachers choose to be a part of the Crossroads educational community. The curriculum focuses on the fundamentals of reading, writing, and math with a hands-on, interdisciplinary approach. Technology, cooperative learning, critical thinking, and real-world application of knowledge are also considered to be fundamental to the core curriculum.
With continued community support, this effective school can continue to benefit the lives of our students and provide a meaningful, enriching alternative to low-performing area schools.

TCAP
 
 
The Turning the Corner Achievement Program (T-CAP) serves sixth and seventh grade students at The Crossroads School. The program provides students with academic intervention in the areas of reading, writing, and math while addressing the needs of the whole child with academic and enrichment projects and wrap-around support for families.
The T-CAP staff provides student services during school hours as well as after school. Program components include: Targeted Assistance, Integrated Academic Support, Acceleration, Extended School Day programming, and Family Services. The program also includes an enriching summer component designed to increase retention of academic skills that are often lost during the summer.
