Today was such a brilliant day! I asked today’s team what they wanted their name to be and they responded with Cloud Nine – they are such an amazing group that’s eager to learn and do well at both the classroom and on the court. -Shane Leander, After School Leader and Crossover Alum

What Do Students Learn?
Students work on recognizing self, learning through play, and building confidence to create critical thinking moments in developing real-life solutions. Crossover’s curriculum is designed not to create the next Michael Jordan or Yao Ming but to use basketball as a vehicle to impact graduation rates and create future leaders. With a wide-range of athletic abilities and size, students engage in activities to develop confidence, empathy, and critical thinking.
Students become part of our overall impact program which invites them to hear thoughtful speakers, business leaders, educators, and alumni.
