The Ridgefield Academy campus, situated on 42 rolling acres, provides an unparalleled setting for joyful learning and academic excellence. Westchester and Fairfield Country families enjoy easy access to campus, which is located just outside the town of Ridgefield and less than a mile over the New York border, near Pound Ridge, Bedford, and Katonah.
The campus features a number of spaces where students can work, collaborate, and socialize in small group settings.
David Schwartz reflects on his years at Ridgefield Academy and how they prepared him for the road ahead.
RA students are encouraged to find their true voice, empowered to advocate for themselves, and motivated to engage in the culture of their school and their community.
Ridgefield Academy has long since understood the intrinsic value of strong communication skills and confident public speaking.
"They will know they have been loved, they will know they have been challenged, and they will know they come from a place with a soul."
"We have grown as a result of our Ridgefield Academy lives as much as our children."
"The benefit of being able to look back is that the highs all look crisper, they look more elevated, they’re more important and the lows tend to fade."
"The development of character, the preparedness for choices, the values that will allow young adults to stand tall when there’s a really difficult choice in front of them."
"This is a community where parent involvement and participation is required and the more we get the more special this place is, both for the children and the parents."
