Christian Boarding School – Rooted in Faith

We’re Different From Other Christian Boarding Schools

There are many areas that set Crosswinds apart, but none is more significant than our Christian foundation. Unfortunately, the term “faith-based” has become watered down in the social service arena. At Crosswinds, our commitment to faith is something that goes beyond our founders and by-laws. It truly is at the core of why we do what we do—and, in fact, the reason we are successful in what we do.

What does this mean for those we serve? It means a couple of things. First, we’re committed to operating with integrity according to biblical beliefs and Christian values. You’ll see this in our staff, our programming, our financial stewardship, and our investment in kids and families. Secondly, our desire is that those we serve would come to know the life-changing hope of Christ. This truth is interwoven in our curriculum, counseling, and individual relationships. However, we understand and respect each person’s choices related to his or her beliefs, therefore we will never force our faith on someone else as if they were living in a teen boot camp environment. In fact, we believe this does more harm than good. Instead, our goal is to provide an environment that is rich with opportunities to ask questions, search the Bible, receive Godly teaching, and see examples of faith at work so that Christ may be evident to all.

Crosswinds will serve clients of any religious background or belief system, and a commitment to faith in Jesus Christ will never be required to advance in or continue with any of our services.
