“Providing a Place for Success – Today and Tomorrow” is Crossroads’ vision and purpose. This vision was developed based on the conversations among Armona’s staff, administration, school board, and community members; input from other county school districts, health and social service agencies and the county office of education were also included.
Crossroads Charter Academy’s mission is to provide an alternative opportunity for student success by creating a bridge between the home and academic world in a safe and supportive environment.

The Crossroads Charter Academy is sponsored by the Armona Union Elementary School District. The charter was approved by the AUESD Board of Trustees in 2003 and began as a 3rd through 8th hybrid independent study program with a required classroom component. In 2005, charter was re-written to include all grades and opened the learning center in Hanford. In the summer 2010, we relocated our Hanford lab and offices to our current location on W. 8th St.
Crossroads Charter Academy (CCA) offers an independent study program. Students use personal computers and internet access at home to complete all of their lessons.
Parent/Guardian & student must meet with a certificated teacher each week, for a minimum of 1 hour., to discuss student progress and collect work samples. Crossroads offers many freedoms; we have found these meetings necessary to keep the students on track. Students will be asked to participate in school and state mandated testing.
Students (grades 7th-12th) also have the option to use the school's drop-in computer lab for up-to 3 hrs each day. We do not allow breaks, outside of the lab, and once they leave they are not allowed to return.
Our program goals includes:In addition to our weekly appointments and drop-in lab, we also offer two on-site vocational education electives in the area of Building Skills and Health Science Careers, and small group tutoring.
