Crossroads Foundation

Program Description

Crossroads Foundation was founded in 1988 to help youth from families in underserved neighborhoods in Allegheny County have access to a quality high school education. Originally a private, family funded program, Crossroads Foundation formed a Board of Directors in 1998 and acquired official 501(c)(3) status in 2003. Since its inception, Crossroads has helped over 500 young people successfully graduate from a Catholic high school prepared for college and career opportunities.

Our mission is to provide promising youth who have limited options access to a quality Catholic high school education by nurturing their academic and personal growth so they may succeed in college and in life. We envision a world where all students, regardless of means, have access to the educational opportunities and support necessary to achieve their God-given potential.
