    Important Information about Enrollment in Credit Classes:

    Absences & Tardies
    For Upper School credit courses students must plan to attend all twenty four days of class.
     
    We understand that illness can happen in the summer. For classes that meet for twenty-four days, a student may miss a maximum of three class sessions. For classes that meet less than twenty-four, a student may only miss two class sessions. Two tardies to the same class may count as one absence.
     
    When absent or late to class, students are still responsible for completing all assigned work. Students must complete all course requirements to receive Upper School academic credit. Additional absences will lower a student’s grade in the class and or may preclude the awarding of any credit.
     
    Academic Credit
    An academic credit form is required to have grades and transcripts sent to a student’s home school.
  • Algebra 2, grades 10-12 [CANCELED]

    This class has been canceled.

    This course continues the progression from elementary algebra and integrates concepts from Geometry. Students learn to solve more complicated mathematical equations while they explore various functions and relations. Emphasis is placed on graphs and applications. This course covers linear functions, systems of equations, quadratic functions, logarithmic and exponential functions, rational algebraic functions, and polynomial functions of degree 3 and higher. A graphing calculator (not included in class fee) is required.

  • Biology, grades 9-12 [SOLD OUT]

    This is a full year, activity based, laboratory science course focusing on the unique properties of living organisms and how they connect to larger Biosystems. Topics may include science of research, cell biology, genetics, evolution, molecular biology, elements for life, carbon and nitrogen cycles, and ecology. Critical thinking and problem solving are emphasized. Students work with digital microscopes, perform individualized experiments, interpret data, and form generalizations. The department aims to ensure that students gain an understanding of the diversity and complexity of life, and an appreciation of the sanctity of life regardless of its form.

  • Chemistry, grades 10-12

    Chemistry is a full year course designed as a general introduction to the properties and interaction of all forms of matter. Through inquiry-based investigations, hands-on experimentation, demonstrations and problem-solving sessions, students gather facts, organize data and analyze trends and patterns that explain the nature of matter. The course covers chemical periodicity, chemical bonding, nomenclature, chemical reactions, gas laws, molecular geometry, and in-depth stoichiometric calculations. Students should expect 2-3 labs, 2-3 quizzes, and 2-3 tests per week. Chemistry is a math-intensive course; therefore, students must have a strong facility with Algebra. 
    Prerequisite: 1 year of Biology, B- or better in freshman math course or completion of Intermediate Algebra. 
     
    This is a UC/CSU/NCAA approved course.

Important Information

Fees
Summer at Crossroads fees include all classroom materials, supplies, books, a session photo and a t-shirt.

Lunch/Snack
Children have lunch time within their afternoon program. A variety of healthy lunch options are available for purchase through Fresh Lunches. Instructions on how to order from Fresh Lunches will be available before programs begin in June.

A daily snack is provided for all students participating in Extended Care in the afternoon.

Swimming
For those enrolled in the K-5 programs that include a swim component, swimming is provided at our K-12 Sports Center in our heated outdoor swimming pool. Our qualified aquatics instructors teach our group lesson program. Small group instructional swimming lessons are provided during the afternoons, Mondays through Thursdays. All children are swim tested for group placement and testing determines the appropriate area of the pool for the student’s participation. The program goals are to encourage water safety, to increase water confidence, and to enhance skills development. Parents are invited to observe swimming at the culmination of each session.

Children should come to school prepared to swim on the first day of their program.
