Dear Families,

Students achieve their best academically when they are well-known by teachers, and their experience is personalized. Lake Ridge Academy is a school known for exceedingly high scholarship where every student is known well and cared about by their teachers and other adults.

As an independent school, Lake Ridge Academy offers an engaging and effective curriculum driven by our teachers and other campus leaders, not by a centralized bureaucracy. With an 8:1 student-to-teacher ratio, our teachers build relationships with our students and inspire them to excel in academic pursuits and co-curricular interests. It is only through these individual connections that a teacher can inspire students to do their personal best based on their individual talents, interests, and limitations.

I believe every child is a genius, and part of our teachers’ job is to help every student find their particular passion, whether in math class, on the basketball court, at their easel, or on stage. Lake Ridge does this better than any other school I know. If you are part of our community, you already know this, and if you are not, I invite you to see our school and get to know us. Thanks for visiting!

Warm regards,
Mitch White
