School Colors

Royal Purple symbolizes royalty and spirituality. Purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. Purple was the favorite color of Egypt's Cleopatra. Purple robes were worn by royalty and people of authority or high rank. The Purple Heart is a U.S. Military decoration given to soldiers wounded in battle.

Black which symbolizes strength, is conservative, goes well with almost any color. It can be serious, conventional, and sophisticated. Black can make other colors appear brighter.

White symbolizes purity, cleanliness, and innocence. Some cultures viewed white as the color of deities. Angels are typically depicted as wearing white.

Gray, our accent color and is a pigment of dye that is formed from a combination of black and white and is near the color of ash or lead.

Mascot

The Scorpion, common name for arachnid having a flat, narrow body, two lobster-like claws, eight legs, and a segmented abdominal tail. Terminating in a venomous stinger supplied by a pair of poison glands, the tail is usually curved upward and forward over the back. About 1400 species of scorpion exist; about 40 of them occur in the United States. When capturing a victim with its claws, the scorpion inflicts a disabling sting with its tail. In most species the sting is painful, but not fatal, to humans, although the sting of one species found in the United States has proven fatal to young children and is potentially fatal to adults. Other areas of the world have more dangerous scorpion species; the poison involved is a neurotoxin, attacking the nervous system. The one potentially deadly species found in the United States is classified as Centruroides sculpturatus. The world's most dangerous scorpions live in North Africa. 

What are Charter Schools?

Charter Schools are independent public schools, not private schools. As public schools, charters do not pick and choose their students. The "charter" establishing Crossroad is a performance contract detailing the school's mission, program, goals, students served, methods of assessment, and ways to measure success. CACS is accountable to its' sponsor-- the local school board-- to produce positive academic results and adhere to the charter contract.
