The Crossroads School has a rivalry with the nearby Brentwood School.HistoryThe school was founded in 1971 as a secular institution affiliated with St. Augustine By-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Santa Monica. Although the founders, and many of the school's original students, came from the former St. Augustine By-the-Sea Episcopal Day School in Santa Monica, Crossroads School has always been a secular institution. Crossroads started with three rooms in a Baptist church offering grades seven and eight, and an initial enrollment of just over 30 students. The name Crossroads was suggested by Robert Frost’s poem, The Road Not Taken,” in which Frost writes:Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. 1714 21st St 90404-3917 Santa Monica United States Call: (310) 828-1196
