What is CrossRoad?
CrossRoad is a ten-day academic summer institute that prepares high school juniors and seniors to make big life decisions and invites them to connect with the Orthodox Christian theological and spiritual tradition. Participants from all over the country come together to experience daily worship, take theology classes from some of the best professors in the country, visit local parishes, serve their neighbor, tour the city, and even spend a day at the beach.
Historically, CrossRoad has been hosted solely on the campus of Hellenic College Holy Cross. This year, we are excited to announce that CrossRoad is expanding to Chicago! This summer, there will be a third session offered on the campus of North Park University in Chicago, IL.
CrossRoad Chicago is the same program, run by the same staff, in a brand new location! We are very excited to continue to broaden the impact of CrossRoad!
“My time here at CrossRoad has changed my life. CrossRoad is more than just a camp, it is an immersion into the Orthodox faith. I have created friendships that will not just last a lifetime, but also experience the same spiritual struggles that I do. Together, we can grow closer to Christ and learn more about our faith. I am proud to call myself a CrossRoad alumni and I am eager to spread my faith to the world.”

“I have experienced more love and camaraderie than I thought possible in so little time, and have learned so many valuable lessons of moral construction through humility, love, acceptance, and forgiveness in the pursuit of delighting in Christ.”
