Cedar River Academy at Taylor serves students in preschool through fifth grade. Learning at Cedar River Academy comes alive through the integration of sustainability with core academic instruction including reading, writing, science, math, social studies, and social and emotional learning. Students attend library sciences, physical education, music, and visual arts classes throughout the week.


Field Based Learning Experiences enhance learning for children. The online registration system includes permissions for students to attend trips throughout the town. These permissions must be completed for students to attend. Based on school board policy, the school will not seek written parental permission for each field trip. Teachers will notify families when trips occur. We also utilize many area experts to visit school to help us learn about sustainability.

The Family/Student Handbook has more detailed information.
