Starting in the Classroom

Sending a teenager away from home to attend a prestigious boarding school in preparation for their college career requires a great deal of sacrifice from families.   International families often struggle with the same issues in addition to complications that cross-cultural education will encounter.
At Cedar Ridge Academy we understand the complex nature of cultural divide and work at breaking down the walls that separate foreign students from American culture.

We are proud of our uniquely large population of professionals who have lived abroad resulting in a broad range of staff who have bilingual proficiencies.  Our academic team uses their firsthand knowledge when working with our international students in an effort to eliminate any cultural barriers that would otherwise impede educational goals.  One way in which Cedar Ridge Academy prepares our international students for future successes in their American educational experience is by enrolling our students in a course designed for the development of educational and professional skills. 

This course is designed around the objective of preparing students beyond the classroom and to compete in today’s modern world.  The course emphasizes the importance of good communication and identifies
methods for improving that vital skill. Application of these skills will be used in collaborative projects and used in peer group discussions where they can further develop the speaking and listening skills to succeed in college.  By the end of the course students are well versed in crafting professional documents which may be used in the admission process for universities or may be used in career portfolios.
