Cristen Mikkelsen Kold (sometimes spelled Kristen; March 29, 1816 — April 6, 1870) was a Danish teacher, notable for creating the Danish high-school system.

Kold was born in Thisted, Jutland.

Unsatisfied with the education system of Denmark at the time, he founded a school in Ryslinge in 1851, which later became a model for the folk high-school system. His work has to be seen in cotext with that of N. F. S. Grundtvig.

Kold died in Dalem.
