Students and their families of Crossroads High School in Tiskilwa have recently been busy moving their classrooms and supplies to the old Reagan building, also in Tiskilwa. The school will use the upstairs of the building and the gymnasium.

TISKILWA — A morning thundershower did not dampen the spirits of more than 30 Crossroads High School students and parents who used covered trailers and trucks to move furniture and books from their former location on Main Street in Tiskilwa to the upstairs of the Reagan school building.

“This is an exceptional opportunity, and we are grateful to the Princeton Elementary School District for entering into this win-win agreement with us,” said Crossroads Principal Andrea Horst. “We are thrilled that we can stay in the Tiskilwa community.”

Crossroads will occupy the four upstairs classrooms and have use of the gymnasium. They are anticipating 20 students this fall, having reached full capacity at the former building.

According to Horst, the new building will give them room to grow, both in terms of number of students and programs. “It also will give us confidence as we receive a site visit in anticipation of accreditation from the Classical Latin School Association this fall,” Horst said.

Crossroads is a classical Christian school that draws families from all corners of the county. Applications are still being accepted for the upcoming school year. For more information and registration materials, visit
