New Jersey Institute of Nature (NJIN)
Students at Cedar Hill Prep are actively involved in research projects in collaboration with the New Jersey Institute of Nature (NJIN). NJIN mentors strive to transform classroom content into real-life, hands-on learning experiences.
As part of experiential learning, CHP students visit the NJIN farm every month. High school seniors and juniors have an opportunity to enroll in a unique program – the Babson Youth Entrepreneurship Program, which focuses on entrepreneurship and leadership skills.

Experiments and Beyond
At Cedar Hill Prep, we strongly believe in experiential learning. Our Middle School students, along with our talented faculty, have been actively engaged in several research projects since last year. Our efforts have been recognized through numerous certifications, including the River Friendly Schools Silver level Certification and New Jersey Audubon Eco Schools Schoolyard Habitat Bronze level Certification in 2023. We take pride in our meadow garden, which has earned National Wildlife Federation Wildlife Habitat certification, and completing the Empowered Schools program. Additionally, we have initiated a compost program that has successfully collected almost 100 pounds of compost throughout the year.
The Middle School Science students completed a fascinating project on Volcanic Mulching. They opted for a creative approach, digging donut pits around the mounds of mulch under the trees on our school campus. This innovative technique helps to safeguard the bark of trees, increasing their lifespan – a marked departure from the destructive effects of volcano mulching.
