Individualized Tuition at Crossroads College Prep

Image
Individualized tuition means that every family pays an equitable amount based on a variety of factors.
Economic Diversity Is Important
So many families like yours choose Crossroads College Prep because they believe that their children benefit from the diversity of identity, experience, and perspectives that makes Crossroads such a unique community. Choosing an independent school takes a significant financial commitment that causes everyone at least a little stress; the price can be overwhelming.
Access Is Important
The Individualized Tuition program is how it happens. Individualized Tuition ensures that your family’s contribution to school costs is considered at a level that aligns with your ability to pay. Not everybody pays the full tuition and not everybody pays the same tuition.
Equity Is Important
Individualized Tuition provides a more equitable approach that aligns with our mission and helps bring the Crossroads community within financial reach.
Individualized Tuition Is Important
Our entire community benefits from socio-economic diversity. Enrolling families all across St. Louis’ economic spectrum makes it possible for Crossroads to create the diverse community that is valued by so many. It provides our children with access to a unique educational experience that immerses them in a learning community with different perspectives, preparing them for the world beyond Crossroads.
