ADMISSIONS: Enrollment in Summer at Crossroads has no bearing on admissions for the academic year.
ABSENCES AND TARDIES: For Upper School credit courses that meet for 29 days, a student may miss a maximum of three meetings of a class. For classes that meet for less than 29 days, a student may miss two meetings of class.
When absent the student is responsible for completing all assigned work. Students must complete all course requirements to receive Upper School academic credit. Additional absences preclude the awarding of credit.
Two tardies to the same class will count as one absence. Absences due to family vacations or trips do not alter the credit standards noted above.

You will be notified when your choices are unavailable. If we are unable to find a program or course that meets your needs, a full refund will be issued.
ENROLLMENT: Enrollment is open to the public. There is no enrollment deadline; however, enrollment is based on a first-come first-served basis.

TUITION REDUCTION: In an effort to support socio-economic diversity, limited resources are available through our Tuition Reduction Fund to defray the cost of enrollment. Decisions are made based on demonstrated need. Applicants interested in applying for tuition reduction may download the application packet on this website or call the Summer Programs Office. Tuition Reduction is not automatic for Crossroads students. Summer policy states that each family must submit an abbreviated application and must contribute some amount toward each student’s tuition.
