Cross Roads

Cross Roads is a program at Rise Above designed for high school students who have been suspended (for 15 days or more) or expelled from school. Students are given the opportunity to stay current on their schoolwork, either by completing assignments from their regular teachers during a suspension or engaging in an online program when expelled. The goal is always to return students to their schools prepared to be successful.

How does it work?
Cross Roads is a FREE program. Students are placed in small classes (6-8 students) with a teacher. There they complete the work assigned to them by their home school. Counseling services and life skills classes are also a part of Rise Above’s curriculum.
