Home > Who Are We?

All of us at Cross Education have been involved for many years, in many places around the world, in helping people learn and aspire to reach personal and professional goals.


The directors of Cross Education have been involved in international education in Canada, the USA,  Japan, and around the world since 1984. They quickly learned that helping people from diverse backgrounds work together, aspire, achieve more than they had previously thought was possible, was the most gratifying of all possible occupations. They all leave behind them a collection of enterprises that did (and continue to do) exactly that!

Cross education is determined to continue a tradition of innovation and excitement in education for people from around the world.
