I would say that Richmond Academy is a good school with lots of diversity. The school is a safe environment with lots of surveillance. I would say that some of the downsides of Richmond Academy is that the staff is quick to judge the students. There is also no real sports teams that compete with other schools. The school has a nice variety of music departments.

I have 2 children that attend Richmond Academy and our family has been very happy! The teachers are excellent and truly care about the students. I love that they are taught about God daily. The Leader in Me Program is wonderful and teaches children to how to become strong leaders.
Richmond Academy is a place where you can feel safe and accepted. It's small, cozy and welcoming. It doesn't matter what you look like or where you are from, you will always feel like you are surrounded by friends and family who care about your well-being. Just like any other school, it could always be improved, but overall, It is an amazing school to be enrolled at. I personally think it is one of the best private schools in the Greater Richmond Area.
