About Our Leadership.

Welcome to Crossnore School & Children’s Home, where miracles happen every day. For more than 100 years Crossnore School & Children’s Home has provided a Christian sanctuary of hope and healing for children in need. As a nationally recognized Residential Education Model, we provide a state-of-the-art public charter school on the Crossnore, NC campus of a beautiful 85-acre children’s home. Our holistic model allows us to care for and nurture each child’s mind, body and spirit. Both the Winston-Salem, NC and Crossnore, NC campuses offer on-site medical care, trauma-based therapeutic services and wide variety of extra-curricular and enrichment activities which make us a unique place for children to live, learn and prosper. Our children come to us from all over NC and range in age from 1-21, and we have a special focus on keeping sibling groups together. We are a private non-profit 501(c)3 organization, and we exist because of wonderfully generous donors and supporters.

In the High Country, you can grab a cup of coffee or have lunch at our wonderful student-led Miracle Grounds Coffee Shop and Café, or you can shop at our 10,000-square foot thrift store named the Blair Fraley Sales Store. Don’t miss our amazing Appalachian weaving museum and fine arts gallery, Crossnore Weavers and Crossnore Fine Arts Gallery.

In Winston-Salem, enjoy the restful atmosphere of The Farm and stop into Miracle Grounds Farm Store to purchase Home-grown produce and other locally-sourced items.

I hope this information sparks your interest and leads you to visit Crossnore School & Children’s Home. Once you visit, I think you will understand why Crossnore School & Children’s Home is so special.
