Vendors and specialists from the community run our extra-curricular activities. From Zumba to Chess, Dance to Lego Robotics, Ridgeline Academy offers a range of opportunities to our students. If we don’t have what your student is looking for, we welcome new connections and ideas!
We offer Music, Art, Spanish, and PE for all students. These classes are taught by experts in their respective fields, enabling our students to have face-to-face time with master craftsmen and women.
Ridgeline Academy does a wonderful job at meeting each student where they are at. The individualized approach to learning is second to none. We love this school, it is truly a family community.

All of the teachers my kids have been around as either a student of theirs or a student in the hall are very supportive, encouraging, and welcoming. The staff and administration has been supportive of our family as a whole. I wouldn’t have my kids attend any other school!
