North Cross School

Thank you for considering North Cross School.


Mission North Cross School is an independent, nonsectarian, college-preparatory school that serves children from early childhood through twelfth grade. North Cross provides a rigorous academic curriculum, competitive with the best college-preparatory schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia. While we explicitly recognize the importance of intellectual development and academic achievement, we also strive to promote personal integrity, empathy, and responsibility to self and community. Through this, our graduates will act as leaders in the local and global communities, persons of intellectual and moral courage, and scholars in the service of others. Philosophy & Objectives In all aspects of program, personnel, governance, and facilities, North Cross School (NCS) endeavors to be among the finest independent schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia. In pursuit of this goal, NCS will: • Compose a diverse student body, one that is able to make full use of the school’s academic, athletic, and artistic offerings; • Assemble—from across the region and the nation— a talented, committed, well-compensated faculty, whose members are excellent in their respective subject areas and are eager to be involved in the lives of their students beyond the classroom; • Develop a Board of Trustees, together with a governance structure, that embraces its stewardship role, is generous in providing its diverse resources to the school’s benefit, and that is representative—in composition and experience—of the larger NCS community; • Offer a comprehensive, rigorous academic program, enhanced and complemented through broad offerings in the fine and performing arts, interscholastic athletics, and community service; and, • Ensure its facilities and financial resources fully support the goals of the program and the individuals responsible for it.
