We Inspire Lifelong Learners

"Please don't let me miss a day of school!"
This is a quote often heard by parents of our students. It's a direct result of receiving a compelling, inclusive, and personalized education. 

Lake Ridge Academy is more than just a school with high academic standards. We develop each student's love of learning from kindergarten to graduation. Once a child is genuinely engaged in learning, there is no limit to their potential success. Our progressive and integrated mix of academic and social curriculum is anchored by our North Star values: Leading with relationships, a firm dedication to exceptional educational outcomes, and prioritizing wellness and belonging.
An inviting educational environment and 93-acre campus facilitate all of this, as do our inspiring teachers, small class sizes, involved parents and alumni, and informed use of technology. The result is an education that couldn't be more engaging or practical. Students who advance through and graduate from Lake Ridge Academy not only know themselves and how to think, but also achieve the most critical goal:

how to thrive in our ever-changing world.
