    My son has been in the Lower School at Lake Ridge Academy the past three years, starting in Kindergarten. Every morning we drive on to campus excited for what the day will bring. The small and diverse class sizes, personal attention from amazing teachers, encouragement of special subjects and the conscientious mixing of students across the school are just some of the reasons why we love Lake Ridge Academy. LRA is truly a wonderful family to belong to! Sending our son to LRA is one parenting decision we will never second guess or regret!

    As the current Student Body President K-12, I hold LRA in high regards. Not only is LRA my school, it is also my home. Everyone is extremely welcoming and you feel instantly connected to the community.

    The teachers are all experts in their field. They all treat you as equals, not as students. They teach you about the great and harsh realities of this world. They care about you and will do everything in their power to help you learn and succeed.

    The academics are excellent! Having AP classes ranging from the arts to computer science and mathematics. There is a 100% graduation rate and 100% of all graduating students enroll in a 4-year college or university.
    As a student of Lake Ridge Academy, I find that my experience at this school has changed me and effectively prepared me for my future. I've learned to voice myself better, and understand my priorities. Personally, I feel that most of my teachers have been incredibly helpful both in and out of the classroom. I've learned several lessons that pertain to life outside academics, and I am truly grateful.

    Despite the student population being small, the campus is incredibly large and resourceful. There are multiple sports offered for each season, and the teams are very inclusive.

    Overall my experience at this school has been very good: teachers are helpful, and the students provide a small, inviting, community.
