North Cross School is partnering with institutions abroad in order to offer their high school students educational experiences modeled after that of an American independent school. We aim to prepare non-American students to excel in an American university setting. Students earn dual diplomas, and most will pursue higher education in the United States.
Located on 77 acres in Roanoke, VA, North Cross School is an independent, coeducational, college-preparatory school in its 76th year of providing the best teaching available in Southwest Virginia. Serving students as young as 3 all the way through to high school graduation, North Cross strives to promote in every student personal integrity and responsibility to the greater community. Upper School students are encouraged to pursue academic, athletic and artistic achievement, which results in opportunities for placement at many of the nation’s top universities.

Most instruction is in English. A second campus in Shanghai, located in the suburban Baoshan District, was opened in August of 2019.
