North Cross School is an independent, coeducational, college-preparatory day school for children in preschool through grade 12 which promotes: scholarship and a love of learning; character and a sense of personal integrity and responsibility; and a commitment to the good of the community.
The program in the upper school is guided by the notion that young people learn and grow most effectively when they are in a challenging environment surrounded by adults who know them well and who value them by maintaining clear, rigorous expectations with kindness.
An outstanding faculty delivers a demanding, creative, and innovative college prep curriculum culminating in college level work in every discipline. Indeed, academic offerings in the upper school most closely resemble those of a fine liberal arts college: introductory, honors, and Advanced Placement courses are available in English, math, the sciences, history, the arts, and world and classic languages Spanish, French, and Latin. Students who have the benefit of an upper school education find their advantages to be many when they head off to the finest colleges and universities in the country: their ability to read critically, write thoughtfully, and speak clearly and convincingly make the transition to college life a seamless one.
