U.S. Private Boarding School and a Basketball Program for Boys from Alabama

Cedar Ridge Academy's basketball team plays competitively year round. We feel that our opportunity is superior to the typical formats of public education system; our players often come from Alabama and enter an environment where they all share the same goal. Learning to be accountable to one another on and off the court, this will truly help build core values as well as build on skills and a love for the game of basketball. As our team achieves common goals, this will give each student athlete a sense of pride in their school and most importantly themselves.

Cedar Ridge Academy provides both academic excellence and an opportunity for basketball competition at the high school level. Some student athletes believe that they need to choose between excelling in sports or doing well in school. We believe that both excellence in school and on the court can be achieved. If you are interested in finding out more about our basketball program and excellent academics, call our admissions director at 866-471-6629 or Email us at [email protected].

For Unmatched Academic and Basketball Skill Sets, Cedar Ridge Academy is the Answer for Students Who Live in Alabama

Given our ability to help students excel academically, Cedar Ridge Academy can make it possible for a student to attend a college or university that his basketball skills and development would permit. If a student wants to improve his “game”, we can help. If a hoopster wants to get into a top-flight school at the collegiate level we can help see that he qualifies. Here are some of our strengths:

1) Blended Learning and self paced academics - Students at Cedar Ridge Academy have a blend of academic experiences including: traditional teacher lead instruction, one on one teacher tutoring, and “online” class instruction which can be watched repeatedly and or paused so the student can ask questions, or look up information. This allows students to progress at their optimal learning pace.

2) Academic Mastery - Students must demonstrate sufficient mastery of a subject in order to complete assignments with a minimum score of 80% before being allowed to move forward in the curriculum. When a student scores less than 80% they are provided additional learning opportunities in order to raise the level of their academic performance to meet the higher standard.
