    Campus Vision

    Our Vision for Crosswinds Accelerated High School is to be a campus in which a student's race, economic situation, language, or previous experiences do not predict or determine their future outcomes. 

    Our mission is to nurture, mentor, and educate all students, especially those who have struggled in a traditional high school setting, in order to ensure their personal growth and success.
