Tuition & Financial Aid

About Tuition and Financial Aid at Crossroads

At Crossroads, we realize that choosing an independent school is a significant financial commitment. We believe that all of our students benefit from the diversity of identity, experience, and perspective that comprise our community. Our internally-funded financial aid program contributes to the promise and potential of our students. As a school in the heart of the city of St. Louis, we strive to provide access to those in our region who would not have the opportunity to attend Crossroads without assistance.

Annual Giving

Beyond tuition, Crossroads College Prep’s programs are supported by a vibrant culture of giving. Every year, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the school participate in Annual Giving, which bridges the gap between tuition and actual program costs, helping to keep tuition competitive and the school’s programs strong. Annual gifts support activities that are not covered by tuition, including athletics, theater, chess, and music, to name a few. Our goal for Annual Giving is 100% participation among families. It’s not the size of the gift—your participation is your greatest gift.
