- For Parents
Crossroads School, Inc. was founded in 1977 by Carol Garnett, a Masters Level Special Education teacher. After twenty-three years of service, Ms. Garnett retired and Dr. Gila Arnoni stepped in as the Head of School. Motivated by her wish to meet the needs of as many students as possible, in 2004 Dr. Arnoni applied for and was granted a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit designation and created a Board of Directors. To this day, Dr. Arnoni upholds Ms. Garnett’s belief that students with learning differences will flourish when provided with personalized curriculum, continuous encouragement, a low teacher to student ratio, flexibility, a rewards system and creative teaching methods.
Dr. Arnoni, an alumni parent, holds a Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology and a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology. Dr. Arnoni has over two decades of experience in education, research and program development. Under her leadership, Crossroads School has continued to thrive, with a steady increase in enrollment, the purchase of additional property and the development of a Twice Exceptional Program and High School. Today, the school is a leader in the specialized education of students with learning differences.
Crossroads School, Inc. prepares students with Learning Differences (K-12th grades) to integrate into a conventional school or college by facilitating maximum academic and social potential in an emotionally safe and supportive environment.
