The Founders

Cornerstone Crossroads Academy was founded by Jim and Jane Beckett of Dallas, Texas.

The Becketts were inspired to begin the school after they volunteered with Hope Literacy in the city’s juvenile justice system. Based on their experiences, the Becketts believed that many good kids were lost in “the system”. These kids had given up on their dream of graduating from high school in order to avoid what had become daily confusion and disappointment due to the large, public school environment. Crossroads was funded primarily through the generosity of the Becketts until their retirement in 2010.

Today, CCA receives funding from grants and private donors. God has provided and continues to provide for all of the school’s needs through individuals, churches, and other foundations who want to give students a second chance.
