Operated by Yale University, Cedarhurst School is a therapeutic school for students grades 6 through 12. Each student's program is tailored to their needs; some attend traditional classes while others get one-on-one attention. Parental involvement is encouraged. Students can either complete their education at Cedarhurst or transition back into their community high school, depending on their needs. The school's Prospect Street building is the former home of John Day Jackson, who for years owned the New Haven Register.
