Why Eagle Ridge Academy

Eagle Ridge Academy offers a unique choice to families who are seeking an academically rigorous, college preparatory education.  Eagle Ridge Academy is the first and only public charter school in the southwest metro area offering a classical curriculum to students in grades K-12.  In addition to the daily study of math, science, history, grammar and literature, Eagle Ridge Academy students study Latin, art history, music history, music theory, logic and rhetoric. 

The Academy honors our country through daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance and the earnest study of our country’s founding and history.  The Academy’s goal is to graduate students with the skills, knowledge and character to be responsible and contributing citizens of our great country.

Eagle Ridge Academy is a non-profit 501c3 organization. Please consider supporting Eagle Ridge Academy with a 100 percent tax-deductible gift. Donate Now.

We thank you for your interest and service to the school and hope you share our joy and pride in what we are accomplishing!
