By offering a variety of sports, Lake Ridge Academy is able to offer an athletic experience for students of various ability levels. Over 70 percent of our students participate in our interscholastic sports program – a number considerably higher than the national norm. For the serious athlete, Lake Ridge Academy has made a strong commitment to provide our athletes with a competitive schedule. The Middle School programs and their coaches work closely with our varsity coaches to develop our student-athletes’ athletic potential. Every year we graduate student-athletes who participate at the college level, often receiving excellent scholarships.
