S is for Students

S is for Students
Here at Cedar Ridge Academy Private International Therapeutic Boarding School, there are three homes for the students to live in. The homes are Redwood, Aspen and Ombu.  The Redwood and the Aspen are the boys’ home and the Ombu is the girl’s home.  This year the Redwood is spending a lot of time in the garden. Here are just some of the things that we will be growing in the Redwoods garden: lettuce, peas, beets, corn, carrots, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, and squash. The Ombu has some goats and llamas. The Redwood has goats, a llama, and some chickens.

The students go to school from 8:00-12:00 and then from 1:00-3:00. There are lots of activities here at Cedar Ridge. You can join one of the clubs that the school has to offer here. They included boxing, magic (card game), basketball, life time hobbies, and technology club. These are good places to interact with your peers in a fun and positive way. 

We also do lots of karate. Karate is taught by Rob and Wes Nielson. During karate, we focus a lot on respect and having a good attitude, as well as a strong, powerful stance.  We show lots of respect to are senseis as well as our peers. The people that are in Karate group go to Karate after school on Tuesdays and Thursday from 3:00-4:30. Cedar Ridge also goes to Karate tournaments the next on that is coming up is in April in Las Vegas. Only the students that would like to go will be going.

This is a version of Capture the Flag that the students love!
There is a level system here at Cedar Ridge the highest level is 900. A 900 has the most freedom on campus.  If you are on 900, you can graduate the program by maintaining level 900 for 2 months. If you are on 800, you can graduate the program if you stay on 800 for 4 months. At level 700 you can start planning off campus activates to the movies or to the football games and other cool outings that may be in town.

These are some of the things that we do here at Cedar Ridge Academy.
