Upcoming Admission Events

While you will want to explore our website and learn more about our school’s story, in order to best understand the value of an RA education and have any questions you might have answered, we encourage you to  request a visit. Additionally, we also invite you to register for one of our open houses - either in-person or online. These events will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about our unique programs and educational philosophy.


Ridgefield Academy and Landmark Preschool’s virtual “Take a Look Tuesdays” are designed with future families in mind. Chat with Admissions Director Dave Suter in an informal online visit to learn about the intellectually inspiring curriculum and the RA/LP community that celebrates childhood and cultivates kindness. These innovative and engaging online events should last approximately 30 minutes.

"The strengths of RA's program can be found on many different levels. I think it is the school's overall approach to curriculum development. Interweaving meaningful literature with verbal and artistic expression; expanding a history unit to include culture, art and science along with the core topic; relating Latin roots to English and foreign language vocabulary are all examples of how RA educates rather than teaches. From the first moment you meet the teaching staff, you realize they are there because they love to educate students."
