Cedar Crest Academy is an independent day school educating early childhood through grade eight. The foundation for our students' achievement and confidence is an individualized educational vision with an emphasis on cognitive learning. Strong curriculum in the humanities inspires young minds to learn languages, create music and art, and experience joy in learning.

The campus of Cedar Crest Academy is home to the Early Childhood Center preschool classes and the Academy elementary through middle school classrooms. The setting is a natural environment with progressive structures for outdoor, classroom, and studio learning. Woodlands provide a colorful backdrop to a campus including a passive-solar classroom building, Early Childhood Center, computer, science, and foreign language laboratories, library, art and music studios and gymnasium.

Cedar Crest Academy offers classes for junior kindergarten through grade eight, with a teacher-pupil ratio of 1:15. Academic curriculum emphasizes personal acceleration, laboratory activity, literary dialogue, science, current issues, as well as social and scientific investigations. Multi-age learning is encouraged for personal challenge and negotiation. Professional educators in music, art, physical education, French, Spanish, and Chinese inspire curricular learning and performance.
