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.


Curiosity will give way to hands-on experience on Saturday, June 1 from 9-11AM when Ridgefield Academy welcomes children of all ages to its annual Touch-A-Truck event. A variety of construction and emergency vehicles will be on location at RA and children are encouraged to touch, climb, and learn! Touch-A-Truck will feature approximately eight different types of vehicles and all will be open for exploration.

Interested families are welcome to learn more about Ridgefield Academy during their visit.  Members of our faculty and staff will be available to answer questions and give tours of RA’s impressive facilities. This event is free and open to the public.



Our admissions office is happy to schedule an in-person or online meeting with you to learn more about your family, understand your approach to learning, and discuss any questions you may have. You can complete an inquiry form here, and we will call you to arrange a convenient time. You may also contact Director of Admission, Dave Suter by email or by phone at 203.894.1800 x112.


"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."
