An Exceptional K-12 Education

When students are passionate about learning, it changes everything. They're more engaged. They're more motivated. And not surprisingly, they're more successful. At Lake Ridge Academy, we inspire passionate learning – with a combination of small classes, innovative teaching, and challenging academics, all set on a beautiful 93-acre campus that acts as an outdoor classroom. It makes for an exciting school day. It develops a genuine love of learning in our students.
