Cedar River Academy students will present their fall term learning projects to parents, other students, and the public during the school's Knowledge Fair on December 13th at 6:30 PM. The Knowledge Fair will be held at the CRA campus located at 3333 Griffin Avenue in Enumclaw. The public is especially invited to join the celebration.
“Cedar River Academy applies its Student-Centered Education Model to transfer learning responsibility from teachers to students”, said Anne Gerken, Cedar River Academy Admissions Director. “Our students develop subject matter skills and then apply them to projects that interest them. This research, build, document, and present cycle assures the student has a high interest level and deep conceptual subject matter understanding.”
CRA students complete a number of projects during each of three terms during an academic year. Near the end of each term, students prepare presentations and demonstrations of their favorite project. End of term Knowledge Fairs enable students to publicly demonstrate their subject matter understanding.
Cedar River Academy is a non-sectarian private elementary and middle school. At Cedar River Academy, students develop state mandated learning skills as they learn to think at high-levels as they analyze information and solve problems in multiple ways. Academy teachers support individual students as they learn to read, write, master mathematics, become fluent in a foreign language, appreciate arts and music, and present their work.
