For many high school students, a top summer priority is to take an SAT prep or college readiness course.  Why not accomplish this important work at CedarS, where you are surrounded by supportive friends, seen as unlimited by our instructors, and where you get to experience a fun camp activity or two each day?  At CedarS, you’ll learn more about your higher Source of intelligence and your divine right to accuracy, test-taking dominion, and effective communication.

Spend your afternoons in an air-conditioned classroom increasing your SAT, ACT, and/or TOEFL scores, improving your writing skills, and learning to read more critically and comprehensively.

Spend your mornings enjoying a fun mix of camp activities, from horseback riding, to swimming (lessons provided as needed), to cable ski, to soccer scrimmages, to learning basic mechanical and fix-it skills, to teambuilding and group problem-solving challenges. Those enrolling 2nd Session can participate in Soccer Camp and Aerial Arts when in the mornings and College Prep in the afternoons.

During the evenings, join in the all-camp hymn sing and testimony meetings, as well as enjoying bonding opportunities with your cohort.  


This program will be collaboratively staffed by Principia academic support faculty and CedarS counselors. Open to domestic and international students alike. Grades: Rising 10th-College FR. Tuition: $800/week. Financial aid available, as needed.


Camper Outcomes:

  • Campers will improve their question recognition, test-taking skills, and overall SAT and/or TOEFL test scores.
  • Campers will improve their academic writing skills in the areas of understanding how to analyze and address the elements of a writing prompt, learning several key “moves” made by successful college writers, paraphrasing and quoting effectively, and improving their sentence construction.  
  • Campers will develop enhanced close reading skills in the areas of reading academic texts for key information, interacting with a text through strategic highlighting and note-taking, and selecting which parts of a text to focus on when time does not allow for a complete reading.
