The Cedar School is a co-ed, private high school for bright, college-bound students with mild-to-moderate language-based learning differences. Students should be no more than 2-3 grade levels behind in their core reading and writing, and should be emotionally and behaviorally appropriate for a regular school setting. Their language-based learning differences should be their primary diagnosis. Students may have a secondary diagnosis of ADHD or anxiety.

If you have any questions about whether The Cedar School might be appropriate for your child, please contact us at



Our application is available through the FACTS system.

To apply, submit:

  • The application
  • A recent psycho-educational testing report (within the last 3 years)
  • Two teacher recommendations, including an English teacher
  • Grade reports from current school

All materials can be uploaded through FACTS.

Our staff will carefully review all materials, and students who fit the school  mission will be invited for a visit. We are always available to answer questions along the way, and look forward to working with you in the admissions process!

"At The Cedar School, I feel that [our daughter] can come out strong from the start and not lose time... we are grateful for the assistance to make it happen and the warm acceptance you’ve given [her]. Her smile is huge. She’s so happy and also relieved. She was scared. Now she’s excited. As a parent, that is the biggest gift possible."  - Parent Testimony
