What sets Ridgeview apart?

Liberal Arts Focus

Much of the elementary school curriculum is a modified version of a Core Knowledge sequence that builds the foundation for a classical, liberal arts education in the high school curriculum. A robust, spoken Latin program begins in Kindergarten, and a Greek program starts in the third grade.

Test Preparation Helps Students Achieve

While Ridgeview expects students will do well on tests such as the ACT and SAT, faculty do not explicitly teach to the test. Ridgeview offers many AP courses and encourages students to take them. Additionally, Ridgeview provides free SAT prep for juniors taking the exam.

Character Education

Ridgeview integrates the character pillars of citizenship, cooperation, responsibility, honesty, integrity, respect, perseverance, and courage into all academic disciplines.
