In 1913, before electricity and paved roads, Dr. Mary Martin Sloop founded a boarding school “in the middle of nowhere” for impoverished mountain children.

Today, a hundred years later, The Crossnore School has come full circle in once again providing a residential education for children in need, weaving together experiential learning and highly focused, individualized care.

At the heart of The Crossnore School is an approach to teaching that inspires  each student to reach beyond past circumstances into the realm of what’s possible in an environment of hope, discovery and Christian love.  

The Crossnore School operates the Crossnore Academy, a K-12 charter school in the center of Crossnore’s hillside campus.  Children served at the school generally come from mountain and piedmont sections of the state, often with special needs traditional public schools find difficult or impossible to meet.shop at crossnore weavers or miracle grounds coffee
