Centers of Excellence

A Passion for Excellence

The Centers of Excellence are the pillars of our academic program at Lake Ridge Academy. These focused areas of study provide unique opportunities and a continuum of learning for all of our K-12 students. Knowledge and applied skills are built during the Lower and Middle Schools, preparing students for rigorous and specialized coursework in the Upper School. We offer courses not typically available in schools such as biomimicry, music composition, and AutoCAD to further our students perspectives and skills.

In the Upper School, each Center offers a graduation certificate program to qualified students who seek a more challenging and dedicated course of academic study. The certificate programs provide in-depth study and real-world learning opportunities, helping students to stand out in the college application process.
