Lake Ridge Academy Students Give Back to the Community
NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH September 20, 2021 – Lake Ridge Academy will kick off its annual commitment to community service with its Year of Service Kick-Off Day on Friday, September 24. Students will travel to area parks in Lorain County to clean up grounds and learn about plants, animals, and resources in their natural settings. The day builds a sense of community while giving students a chance to learn about the importance of service for others and environmental responsibility.
“This is our 12th year of service, and it highlights what makes Lake Ridge Academy so special. We are a small K-12 school, where younger students are mentored by older students, and where a natural world education makes our curriculum come alive,” said Mitch White, Head of School.
“Our commitment to service is more than just one day,” said Sara Svoboda, coordinator of Year of Service and Learning Specialist for grades 6-12. “This is a year-long experience where our students help others in their community as they work together to fill food pantries, organize clothing drives, and fulfill holiday wish lists. Our students are caring and compassionate, and they know they can make a difference.”
Lake Ridge Academy is a private, independent K-12 school located on 93 wooded acres in North Ridgeville. Over 400 students from 35 communities are enrolled in an academic program that is known for small class sizes, a natural world education, and academic rigor in preparation for college achievement.
