From the Principal
This year Cross Hill took the S.T.E.M. program a step higher and embraced S.T.E.A.M. We challenged ourselves in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math education. Cross-curricular projects created opportunities for our students to develop planning, creative and problem-solving skills as they approached each assignment with enthusiasm and completed them with satisfaction.
Benjamin Franklin said, "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." He was well-known for his inventions and leadership. Without his passion for discovery, we might not have the gift of those inventions.
The time you spend at Cross Hill is an investment in your future. Use this time wisely by searching for knowledge and nurture your natural curiosity to know more, see more and be more. Studying hard and applying your new-found knowledge is the best investment you can make for yourself and your future. The payoff can be just what you thought or as great as you can imagine. It's all up to you.
You all have the ability to make a difference, to change your future, to lead a life of wonder, curiosity and enrichment.
My challenge to the students of Cross Hill Academy is to surprise us, amaze us and make us proud.
I BELIEVE in you . . . BELIEVE in yourselves.
A child educated only at school is an uneducated child. ~George Santayana
