Welcome to Crossroads Alternative High School


The Staff of Crossroads/Kentwood Community Education, in partnership with the students, parents, and community will create a stimulating, positive, and safe environment ensuring mutual respect.

We believe that all students can learn essential and effective cognitive skills enabling them to be responsible and productive contributors in a changing world.

 "ALL students are honored students"


Whenever conditions warrant the closing of school, parents are asked to monitor the local television and radio stations beginning at 6:00 a.m. Every attempt is made to have the information broadcast no later than 6:30 a.m.

• If school is cancelled, all practices and rehearsals are also cancelled. A decision will be made at 1:00 p.m. regarding sporting events, and evening programs.

In the event of a Two Hour delay:

• Busses will pick up students 2 hours after their normal pick up time. For example, if your bus normally arrives at 7:35 a.m., it will now arrive at 9:35 a.m. The afternoon drop off times would remain the same as normal.

The Crime Prevention Association of Michigan is proud to announce that Ian Gibson, Dean of Students at Crossroads, has been chosen as this year's recipient for the Outstanding Crime Prevention Practitioner Officer Award. The Crime Prevention Association of Michigan Award is presented annually to honor its members and persons who have demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the citizens of Michigan in the field of crime prevention.

 Mr. Gibson has coordinated and led a group called KOPS, which stands for: Kids and Officers Partnering in Schools. The KOPS program began at Crossroads in 2012-2013 school years. The purpose of the group is to bridge the gap with at-risk youth and law enforcement. Also involved in leading the groups with Mr. Gibson are Officer Jeff "Gus" Augustin from Kentwood Police Department and Deputy Tom McCutcheon of Kent County Sheriff Department. Congratulations to Mr. Gibson, the officers and the students for a wonderful program.

 Thank you Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs for supporting Crossroads!
