How We Got Our Name

Cedar Tree Academy is named as a tribute to the great abolitionist, educator, philosopher and land owner Frederick Douglass. His estate, Cedar Hill, is a national historic site very close to our school.  His home provided the backdrop to his active political and academic life. Like the cedar trees that populate Douglass’ estate, Cedar Tree Academy is strong, well-rooted and a local presence.
