Curiosity is powerful. At Ridgefield Academy, the dreamers of today become the thinkers of tomorrow.
Ridgefield Academy is deliberately Preschool-Grade 8, with no high school. The school offers substantive academics that foster joyful learning within a supportive and vibrant learning community.
Small class sizes, individual attention, and a culture that encourages students to take risks and speak their minds promise that each student is seen understood, and encouraged to rise to their best self.
An active and meaningful Kindergarten and Grade 8 buddy program, robust school-wide service-learning activities, and grade 6-8 interdisciplinary weeks offer examples of a program designed with intentional connectedness.
Guided by its Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, RA’s intellectually inspiring curriculum ensures that students engage in learning that is both comprehensive and meaningful to their lives. Students find the power of their voices during class discussions, collaboration with their peers, and public speaking.
At every age, RA students build a strong foundation as authentically self-assured individuals who have a strong sense of self, love to learn, and move forward without fear. They graduate prepared for success in even the most challenging high school programs and beyond.
