CEDAR –Community, Education, Developing Awareness & Resilience

 

Community – One of the most important parts about school is community.  Our kids need to learn to work with others and care about their community.   In the workplace EQ (how one interacts with people) is as important as IQ (one's sheer problem solving power).    

Education – Philosophically, metaphysically, and epistemologically – we believe that knowledge is based in applicable ideas, learned through direct experience, and developed for the good of society. While the online learning component of our program contrasts our ideals – we strive to make the best of it.  When possible we try to help the students link their online coursework with real life "sense of place" examples that they can relate to.

Developing Awareness – Awareness of self, others, the environment, and the world around us.  When discovery can lead to wonder, engagement, awe – good things happen.

Resilience – When we can healthily internalize failures / obstacles / hardships and respond positively with action, grit, and creativity – we grow.  We aim to create an environment where challenges and “whammies” are celebrated and looked upon as opportunities.

What's our Niche?

Both the directors here at Double K have their M.S. Degrees in Experiential Education and are ardent believers in engaged learning.  They also have elementary age students at CERSD and want to create a community of learners.

We designed our Cedar program to fulfill student's online curriculum needs, engage in outdoor and experiential learning, and give kids a chance to come together in community

We believe in a "responsive classroom" - where students' voices and sharing are welcome, wanted, and part of the daily routine. 

We love tech!  We want to see kids learning to solder circuit boards, coding, and hopefully learning Linux. And yes, even 1st graders can learn.

Outdoors is our specialty.  Kids need space, nature, and exploration.  Double K is blessed with all these.  We have a pond, stream, forest and fields.  The more time outside without a mask - the better.

Double K is a Christian environment.  While students are welcome from all walks of life, one can expect fun prayers before meals and a staff grounded in Christian hospitality.
