About Meadow Ridge Academy

Do you want your children to share your values?

Do you want your children to focus on academics like math, reading, writing, science, and history?

Do you want your children to be free from the social engineering of the public school system?

Have you heard of micro-schools, one-room school houses, or hybrid schools?

If so, then we are excited to share an introduction to Meadow Ridge Academy.

Meadow Ridge Academy offers three different options to help you get a custom-fit education for your children.  1. Our most popular option is a blended learning format where students join us in-person four mornings a week and then do their math and language arts at home on-line in the afternoons Monday through Friday;  2. We have a full-time in-person private school where the students are with us full-time four days each week with one day for optional student/teacher Zoom meetings;  3. Finally, we have ala carte classes for home-school students.

At Meadow Ridge Academy we teach in-person from a Judeo-Christian Classical education viewpoint using the Principle Approach in a one-room school. The blended learning options for math and language arts are provided online for the students to do from home.  We currently provide 5th through 8th grade in-person learning options.  9th through 12th grades can call to inquire about individualized learning options. We are planning to expand grades and classrooms as fast as we can keep up with the growth. 

Check out our FAQ tab for more information.  At the top of the website there is an "Apply" button you can click if you would like to arrange a meeting or phone call.
