Welcome to JCS Cedar Cove

Our Mission

At Cedar Cove Academy, we challenge each child to achieve academic and personal success in a nurturing environment. We believe that every child is unique, precious and is worthy of celebrating! We believe each child deserves a high-quality education from highly-trained and masterful teachers. At Cedar Cove Academy, teachers and other staff members make it their mission to come to know each child’s special talents, learning styles, strengths, and needs.

Through continual and varied means of assessment, teachers strive to tailor their instruction to provide each student with the most appropriate learning experiences. Cedar Cove Academy teachers design differentiated learning centers that allow children choice and experiential practice, and the students have the opportunity to carry out a wide variety of engaging projects throughout the school year. Students learn to collaborate, think critically and respond to the world around them as they gain independence and responsibility within a loving community.


Julian Charter School is the first school I ever felt like I fit in. I love my teachers and the other kids are all nice.

JCS Home Study has allowed me the flexibility to educate my own child while providing me with all the resources to be successful!

We are a success story, and it wouldn’t have happened without Julian Charter School.

You’re never going to find friendships at a (traditional) public school like you will here.
