Newest Crossroads Charter facility opens

By Angie Baldelomar

Crossroads Charter Schools has opened its newest facility, the Historic Thayer Building, which will house Crossroads Preparatory Academy (CPA).
The opening was on Monday (Aug. 20). Home to nearly 200 students in grades 7-10, CPA will grow to serve 600 students in grades 7-12 by 2025, according to a press release.
“The passion the Crossroads Preparatory Academy staff and scholars bring to this historic building is both exciting and contagious,” said Kirsten Brown, CPA principal, in the press release. “Teachers, parents and community members are eager to collaboratively transform the secondary educational experience and outcomes for the scholars of Kansas City through the work that will be done at CPA.”
Crossroads announced in February that CPA would be in the Historic Thayer Building. Phase I of the renovation has been completed, including learning spaces for seventh- and eighth-graders on one level, and ninth- and 10th-graders on another.
Future phases of the building renovation will include spaces for visual and performing arts, STEM labs, “maker spaces” and other common spaces within the building and construction of a gymnasium.
