Scholar Green (/ˈskɒlə ɡrn/[1][2]) is a village in the civil parish of Odd Rode, in Cheshire, England. Encompassing the smaller settlements of Kent Green and The Bank, it is near Mow Cop, Alsager, Rode Heath, Butt Lane and Kidsgrove and in the unitary authority area of Cheshire East.

Scholar Green has a long history, as shown by the number and range of listed buildings in and around the village. Little Moreton Hall, a Grade I listed moated timber-framed house, has stood in the village since the early 16th century. Other listed buildings include the 18th-century Rode Hall and All Saints Church, built between 1863 and 1864 and designed by George Gilbert Scott. The Macclesfield Canal runs through Scholar Green, and the Trent and Mersey Canal is nearby.

The population is served by three public houses: "The Rising Sun", "The Bleeding Wolf" and "The Traveller's Rest". The village is also served by All Saints Church, Scholar Green, by the Bank Methodist Church and by Scholar Green Primary School.[3]
