Our admissions process is designed to help us mutually understand if Cedar Crest Academy is the right fit for your child and family. We understand the importance of choosing the right school for your child.  In order to make an informed decision, we invite you to take the first step in our four-step admissions process.  Visit one of our four campuses and experience Cedar Crest Academy’s unique, family-like culture up close.

We offer preprimary at all four of our conveniently located campuses. Our outstanding elementary program is exclusively at our Bellewood campus in northwest Bellevue.

Our admissions group tours are on on prescheduled dates twice per month.  During the application season (November through February), these tours are increased to once per week. Admissions tours are scheduled at 9:30 in the morning and last 30 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the campus and dynamics of the group. During a tour, you will be guided through the school with the director and observe the classrooms, students, and staff in action.

We also host comprehensive open houses at each campus. Please refer to our posted schedule. At an open house, you’ll receive a more formal presentation of our program.  You and your family can also walk through the school at your leisure, interact with the staff, current families and students while learning about our academic curriculum, social/emotional programs, and enrichment opportunities.
