Academic Overview

 

It’s one thing to say we’re a good school, one that shapes and prepares students not only for college, but also for what life throws at our students in today’s society.

What may be better is to show how we accomplish that.

First, we start with the highest standards of academic excellence and personal conduct.

For more than 40 years, Cedar Creek has cultivated a course of study that develops the knowledge, intellect, and critical thinking skills of its students.

Next, we’ve taken special care to foster a comprehensive curriculum and instructional design that aligns with the school's mission and expectations for student performance. The school works diligently to ensure its curriculum has cohesive scope and sequence; that is, one grade builds upon another, from Pre-K through the 12th grade.

Our team of teachers also regularly engages students with meaningful technology in the classroom to ensure students will be prepared not only for the post-secondary environment, but also for the technological demands of the 21st century.

Our curriculum uses instructional strategies and co-curricular activities to encourage students to be curious, involved and active learners. We value that each student brings different gifts to this world, and it is our mission to help students find those gifts. Our extraordinarily dedicated and exceptional teachers know that the successful pursuit of knowledge lies in the vigor and commitment students bring to it. Our students consistently prove that they excel in our rigorous academic environment with regional, state and national recognition, acceptance into the nation’s best colleges and universities, and the acquisition of millions of dollars in scholarship offers.

Another critical component is limited class size. Small classes encourage close relationships – lifelong friendships, even -- in our school community. Smaller class size also translates to a better quality of interaction between the students and their teachers. Students feel more comfortable delving deeper into subjects, asking more questions. This translates to a greater mastery of a subject and greater achievement overall.
