  • Beginning Enrichment All Day, grade K in September

    Our Beginning Enrichment program provides young children the opportunity to continue to grow in their own unique cognitive, social and emotional ways.   
    Within the given theme, popular children's books are used to integrate activities in literature, social studies, science, art, storytelling, singing and play.  

    Experiences in beginning reading, early writing, and math development make this program a perfect summer bridge for the child with emergent skills. We attend thoughtfully to this transitional time between preschool and Kindergarten.  

    What’s in a garden and what helps it grow?  We will dig up the answers to these questions and more in Kindergarten. Come along with us as we enjoy the delights of summer’s longer days and warmer evenings in the garden! 

    4 Small group instructional swimming lessons are provided during the afternoons, Mondays through Thursdays, for approximately thirty-minutes. 

    School is closed Wednesday, July 4.

    Out in the Garden discover crickets, ladybugs and lizards at play. Dance through the caterpillar life cycle and watch real butterflies emerge. Dig dirt, plant seeds and watch them grow. Smell, touch and taste all that lives out in the garden.

  • Digital Filmmaking Workshop, grades 6-12

    The videos that you’ve always thought about making are possible to create! Join us in this class to experience every facet of the digital filmmaking process. Learn how to take your idea from concept, to developing your story, to writing out dialogue for your characters, to shooting and editing your own movie. Understand the process like never before, and have fun doing it! You can shoot with your own film camera or use our DSLR’s or mini camcorders. All levels of filmmakers from beginning to advanced are welcome, as this program is tailor-made to your abilities.

    This is our eighteenth year of the Crossroads Jazz Workshop and it is bigger and better than ever! Our experienced jazz instructors have developed a five-week program designed to enhance the young musician’s knowledge and skills in the area of jazz music.  
     
    This program covers everything that jazz students need to learn including improvisation, style blending in an ensemble, sight-reading, ear-training, jazz theory, and jazz history. Students play in jazz combos and have instrument-specific sectionals. 
     
    The ensembles perform at Third Street Promenade and at Disneyland. In addition, professional jazz artists are invited to hold master classes for our students. Previous clinicians have included Marcus Miller, Danny Gottlieb, Jeff Berlin, Peter Erskine, Tom Ranier, and Abe Laborial.  
     
    While the full-five-week program is recommended, we understand the summertime can be a busy time for a young musician. Three- and Two-Week options are now available. See below for Dates and pricing. 
     
    Jazz is alive and well at Crossroads, so come and be a part of it! 
     
    Students should have at least one full year of playing experience on their given instrument and should have basic technical performance skills. No audition is necessary.

  • Science, "Design It! Build It!" grades 2-3

    In "Design It! Build It!", young engineers build on their natural curiosity by exploring engineering concepts through hands-on learning.  They get a taste of different fields of engineering including, civil, mechanical, environmental and aeronautical.   Through structured projects that involve planning, creating, testing and improvising, students “live” science and math concepts and see their relevance in real-world applications.   These young engineers are also challenged with constraints and requirements during their projects so they can begin to understand how it is important for engineers to be practical with regards to cost and safety. From first tinkerers to advanced designers, this exciting science class has something for everyone, and is tailored to provide each child with an enriching experience.
