How are students selected?

Students are selected through an application process. We place the most weight on the applicants’ essay and recommendations and will specifically look to have a diverse group of students. We do ask for high school transcripts, but this is only informational for us, to see the various interests and strengths of applicants. We can only accept a limited number of applicants, so be sure to submit all of your application materials by the application deadline.

For questions on our selection process or for more information contact us.

What if I can’t afford tuition?

It is our CrossRoad policy that no accepted participant requesting tuition assistance will be turned away. With that in mind, we have full/partial scholarships available once a student is accepted to the program. The financial aid application process is “needs blind,” meaning the acceptance process is independent of student financial need.

How do I apply for Financial Aid?

Students will be able to apply for financial aid only after they have been accepted to the program. Accepted applicants will receive a packet of information on how to apply for financial aid/scholarships with their acceptance letter.
