(Crossroads FLEX is NOT an early college)
Crossroads FLEX, in partnership with North Carolina Virtual, is a digital, blended learning school. Blended learning is using both online and in-person learning experiences when teaching students. Crossroads FLEX serves students whose outside interests and activities require considerable amounts of time during regular school hours known as “pursuits.” Pursuits can include highly competitive and active students in the arts, sports, and entrepreneurship. Crossroads FLEX allows students to meet those obligations while meeting all requirements for high school graduation and college and career readiness.
A Crossroads FLEX student is responsible, self-motivated, engaged, and exhibits the highest degree of integrity. Students are encouraged to reflect on the world around them, refocus their priorities, and refine what they are willing to try differently. At Crossroads FLEX, students meet with teachers to review their learning progress, discuss their work, ask questions, or receive assistance with difficult concepts. Students work independently on online lessons, projects, and assignments at home and school. Crossroads FLEX’s vision is to guide and graduate students whose individual pursuits empower them to emblazon change upon the world.
Crossroads FLEX offers
- Flexibility in class attendance and online learning
- Early morning and evening learning opportunities
- Teachers and a school counselor available on-site and online
- Core classes required for graduation
- A wide variety of electives
- Individualized attention
On the year-round instructional calendar, students attend school 177 days but on a calendar that is divided into four 9-week quarters with a 3-week break between each quarter. Students are assigned to one of four tracks and attend school approximately 45 days when they are "tracked in" and are "tracked out" for 15 days. If a school is a multi-track school, three of four tracks will be "tracked in" while one track is "tracked out". This gives schools extra capacity to serve more students in one school building.
