Nick Drake’s Graduation Speech

Jason HeissererUncategorized

“Is Crossroads even a real school?” Whenever I talk to any student outside of crossroads I get this question, I mean could you blame them, what other school does a voodoo chant whenever they need to wish a student good vibes.

Different and Better

Jason HeissererUncategorized

Friends, Today I was speaking with some prospective parents, and I discovered that I was speaking at length about our students and graduates.
