Discovery Days at Lake Ridge Academy

Our Discovery Days series is designed to inspire and excite students of various ages to think creatively and critically, a core mission at Lake Ridge Academy, by participating in innovative activities of their interest on our beautiful 93-acre campus.  Led by our outstanding faculty, we intentionally keep attendance low so that your child will have the opportunity to make this a rewarding learning experience.

The Discovery Days series also includes a college event designed for parents with elementary and middle school aged children. 

All events are free. Advanced registration is required.

Wednesday November 8, 2017:  Pathway To College:  Are You Ready?

College admission is a marathon, not a sprint.  Today, families and students need to begin thinking about college earlier than before.  This college planning info night will give you answers about affording college in an ever-changing financial landscape and how your child's academic and extracurricular choices in middle and high school play a role in future college acceptance. Speakers include college admission representatives from Case Western Reserve University, The College of Wooster, financial planning experts from HPM Partners, and Lake Ridge Academy's director of college counseling.   It's never too early to start your child's pathway to college and gain necessary insight.
