Crossroads Academy encouraged me start my college courses while I was still in high school. I was also able to attend West-MEC for their Dental Assistant Program. I then decided to pursue a degree at NAU to become a Dental Hygienist! I am doing well and ready to start my Sophmore year at NAU!
I enrolled at Crossroads Academy with the intention of getting caught up and then transferring to the local high school. But when I found out how much support and encouragement I was getting at Crossroads, I decided to stay. I graduated a year early and am already working full time.
I really didn't want to come to a small school, but I had to register between semesters so I didn't have a choice. It turns out, this was a great opportunity for me. I found a real family on this campus. They referred me to a job that I really like and I've graduated a few months early.
I worked really hard to complete 3 years of high school in just one year.
Since graduation, I've started my pre-req's at Estrella Community College. My goal is to complete these classes in one year and start vet school.
I've earned my welding certification and landed my first job! I'm making a great income and love what I'm doing.
I found out in March that I was going to be short credits to graduate in May with my friends so I came to Crossroads Academy because I could work at my own pace. I was able to complete the work in only 5 months. I have since enrolled in community college.
I was 2 semesters short for my high school graduation so I came to Crossroads to make up the mission credits. I completed the work in 5 weeks and was still able to start college that fall where I'm working towards my degree in kinesiology.
I came to Crossroads Academy for the summer to get ahead and discovered that college courses could be taken while still in high school and decided to stay. By the time I graduated high school I had also graduated from Estrella Mountain Community College Phi Theta Kappa with an Assoc Degree in Arts with High Distinction & Assoc Degree in Science and was able to enter college as a Junior.
I entered ASU to earn my degree in Nuclear Engineering, joined the US Navy where I graduated A School and am currently completing my Power School at Goose Creek.
I came for summer session and stayed so I could take college courses. I graduated from Estrella Mountain Community College Phi Theta Kappa as a Senior in High School with Assoc. Degree in Arts with High Distinction & Assoc. Degree in Science.
In December 2019, I graduated from ASU with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I recently accepted a position at Banner University Medical Center in Tucson in their Cardiothoracic Surgical Unit. I'm also saving to continue my education as a Veterinarian at U of A.
After graduating high school, I worked from job to job to earn money to raise my son. I got a call from the staff at Crossroads Academy after I graduated asking me if I was interested in a job placement program called Escape Velocity so I could get on more of a career path instead of moving from job to job. Now I'm working at a great place and I love what I'm going.
I came to Crossroads because I moved here in the middle of the school year. I was still able to graduate and was able to take advantage of free college courses so I also had dome college credits! I completed my Undergraduate work at Emery Riddle and am now pursuing my Masters Degree.
