Ridgefield Academy opened its doors last Tuesday, September 5, to welcome all Patriots back for a new school year. Smiles and laughter filled the hallways as students reconnected with old friends and met new ones. There are almost 550 students comprising Landmark Preschool and Ridgefield Academy across four campuses with 46 new faces at the Ridgefield campus this year.
RA continues to operate its three satellite preschools in Redding and Westport, Connecticut and Bedford, New York. The Bedford campus is in its third year and, with what started out as a preschool of 8 students, has grown to a student body of over 40 children. The focus of the preschool is on exploration, developing friendships, experimenting with art and music, and speaking a different language all while fostering the love of learning which RA does so well.
Five exceptional individuals join the RA faculty and administration this year on the Ridgefield campus including a Pre-School and Lower School Music Teacher, a full time School Counselor, an Assistant Teacher in Grade 3, an Academic Technology Coordinator in the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, and RA’s first Director of Development.
Ridgefield Academy is located at 223 West Mountain Road in Ridgefield, Conn. 203.894.1800. www.ridgefieldacademy.org.
