An Inspirational Community

Lake Ridge Academy was born from a shared dream of fostering exceptional learning for all. From our founding, our mission has remained steadfast: cultivating a warm and welcoming environment where every student is known, valued, and supported throughout their K-12 journey.

Step onto our beautiful 93-acre campus in North Ridgeville, and you'll experience the difference. Here, learning goes beyond textbooks.

We strive to create unique and creative learning spaces throughout our 93-acre campus.

On any given day you may find students exploring the life cycle of frogs in our pond, traversing our storybook trail, fabricating an exclusive design in our engineering lab, gardening in our greenhouse, or caring for the campus chickens!

The culture we’ve created here is one of trust, honesty, appreciation of diversity, and collaboration. Our teachers engage students with hands-on activities and student-led discussions. Older students mentor and work with younger students. All students are held to a high level of accountability and are taught the importance of integrity and character.
Lake Ridge Academy is the only independent college preparatory school on Cleveland's west side. Our co-educational curriculum offers a unique blend of academics, extracurricular activities, and a focus on character development, all on our beautiful 93-acre campus. With a student-teacher ratio of 8:1, our devoted faculty provides personalized attention to help every student thrive.
