Cedar Creek High School Cedar Creek High School, located in Egg Harbor City, is one of the newer high schools in southern New Jersey. Opening in September 2010, the school originally took in grades 9-10, but expanded to include grades 9-12 in 2012. Cedar Creek is part of the Greater Egg Harbor Regional High School District along with Absegami and Oakcrest High Schools.

This school serves approximately 900 students from Mullica Township, Egg Harbor City, Port Republic, and Green Bank/Washington Township, along with select areas of Galloway and Hamilton Townships. Cedar Creek boasts opportunity and choice in academics, athletics and extracurriculars.

Cedar Creek offers four Magnet Programs, Engineering and Environmental Science, Biomedical Science, and Homeland Security and Public Safety.

These programs were established to attract some students from Oakcrest and Absegami and help with some of the overcrowding at those two schools.
