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

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 Arkansas 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 Arkansas

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.

Eligibility to Play Basketball and Other Sports

Student Athletes can meet eligibility requirements in as few as two weeks once enrolled at Cedar Ridge Academy. Since we are interested in growth both athletically/academically and socially/emotionally, we do have standards and expectations for out student athletes. If a student athlete loses eligibility they may regain eligibility in as few as two weeks.

As parents in Arkansas, it is important to put the needs of our teens in perspective.  Yes, it is important to have empathy with our child and try to remember what is was like to be a fifteen year old again. Remember though, your fifteen year old will never understand what is like to be a forty-five year old, so don't expect them to be able to deal with your emotions and other issues you may have going in your life.

Arkansas, Times have changed since we, parents, were teenagers but the feelings we experienced have not changed. Take the time to relate to your teen as if you were back in their shoes and had to deal with these issues as a fifteen year old. Those were painful times, exciting times but definitely challenging.  Can you remember what is was like back then? Use that feeling and incorporate it into your conversations and emotional relations with your teen today.
