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, history, and foreign languages?

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

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

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.  We have a blended learning option with Prenda.com where students join us four afternoons a week and do their math and language arts at home on-line; we have a full-time in-person private school where the students are with us full-time four and a half days each week, and ala carte classes for home-school students.

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

Summer School Opportunity --           Details Coming Soon!

Would you like your children and teens to keep their edge during the summer or get ahead before the school year starts?  During our summer school session they will work at their own pace and read great literature together for 7 weeks during the months of June and July.  The cost is $50 per month per student.  Each week we have an in-person mentor meeting where we review at-home math and language arts progress and have a group discussion on a work of literature.  This option is only for current or new students starting in the fall who show a willingness to work indepently.


Fall Science Opportunity: Meadow Ridge Academy will be providing a location to host a high school level Biology class for the 2022-2023 academic school year.  MRA will not be charging any fees to host this class, but the science teacher, Mr. Landry does charge a class fee.  His fee is normally $880, but if you sign up at his website by January 21st the price is 30% off and costs $616.  The class will meet on Wednesday mornings from 8:45 to 9:45 at MRA.  The class is a live virtual class.  Mr. Landry has many years of teaching virtually to individuals and groups.  The rest of the classwork can be done at home.  The classwork is as rigorous as a typical public high school level class and is appropriate for students functioning at grade-levels 8th through 12th.  If you are interested in signing up to get the discount, go to https://www.collegeprepscience.com/live-online-science-classes.
