Located in the heart of Bluffton, South Carolina, Cross Schools was established in 1998 to serve a growing community that was then void of an independent grade school. Since then, we have expanded to our campus on Buckwalter Parkway and now educate over 650 students 12 months through 12th grade.  We offer a day school program as well as after-school and summer camp programs.

At Cross Schools, we inspire future leaders to grow spiritually and academically by intentionally designing opportunities for inquisitive learning and active service all for the glory of God.  Small classes, rigorous academics, various enrichment courses, community service, athletics, and faith-based learning help prepare our children to grow into collaborative thinkers with moral and spiritual principles.

We would love to share more with you about Cross Schools and schedule a visit to our beautiful, newly expanded campus.

To be a Stingray is to carry pride on your shoulder everywhere you go. It means you have a community around you that builds you up even when you’re at your worst. I chose to attend Cross for high school because I’ve attended many schools, and this one seems to not only be the best fit, but it’s where my heart lies as well.

Cross has been an amazing experience for me in sports, academics, and just building relationships with teachers and students. I have been here since I was around two years old and I wouldn't change it for the world. Cross is a great community and I couldn't ask for anything more.

We searched Beaufort County for the right environment for our girls academic education and toured Cross Schools 9 years ago. Cross Schools gave us all the warm and fuzzies. Fast forward to today and it’s still the best academic Christian environment for our family! We love this culture and our staff, teachers and leaders. If you are searching for a challenging Christian education, look no further!
