Diversity Mission Statement
The diversity of our families, faculty and staff is apparent in our varied social, economic and racial backgrounds; belief systems; ethnicities and religions; sexual orientations, gender expressions and identities; family structures; and much more. Our diversity enriches the learning experience, exposing students to people of differing backgrounds and perspectives and helping them develop empathy and cultural competency. It also builds their awareness of systematic social inequities and empowers them to advocate for a more just world.

Crossroads has been recognized for decades as an innovative force in education and for the public good. Its progressive philosophy, strong community and culture, emphasis on diversity and inclusion (53% of students and 38% of faculty identify as people of color), and a belief that all domains of school life (arts, athletics, service, etc.) are equally integral to a child’s development and well-being have made it a top choice for families in Los Angeles.
