Crossway Academy

There are many wonderful schools in the Charlotte area that do a wonderful job with our children. However, the families at Crossway Pediatric Therapy repeatedly approach us expressing their concerns regarding whether or not their child is getting what they need at local schools regarding academia and social skills. Specifically, children who learn differently as well as need help with social skills.

Therefore, we at Crossway Pediatric Therapy are excited to respond to this feedback by starting a combined Clinic-School called Crossway Academy which opened in Fall of 2011. One of our hopes is to reach out to the families that currently home school their children because they are unable to find the right school fit for their children and yet the child continues to need social exposure and tutoring.

Crossway Academy is for children ages 6-10 and/or for a middle school for children ages 11-14. The Academy is located onsite within Greylyn Business Park. Education is provided by qualified special education teachers that are dedicated to this mission.


With Kind Regards,

Watch our video from our first year!


The new mural at Crossway is a reflection of how Crossway follows the family and the child through the life span on their journey to gaining independence and full potential. The mural also reflects all the things that we help teach the child how to do like play with kites, ride a bike, etc. Pictured in front of the mural is the very first class at Crossway Academy. We had an absolutely amazing year!
