Stay in charge of your student's middle school and high school path with the added benefit of having access to group activities and a community. With no attendance requirements, no assigned start times, and student-driven opportunities, clubs, and classes you can choose what works and opt out of what doesn't.
The family and school staff, acting as a resource, will develop a course plan. With so many options available, combined with individual interests and talents, every student will have a uniquely personalized plan.
Each semester, students will create a plan through the school portal that includes the courses that they plan to take. Each week, after school starts, students will make weekly goals and communicate their progress to their parents through the school portal. This allows for independence with accountability.
Do you have a student who wants to learn Japanese, start a book club or even house band? At Ridgemont Academy, students can create opportunities on the school portal and invite other students to join. School staff and school families can also create opportunities for the students at Ridgemont Academy. It can be a weekly baking challenge, wilderness skills or resume writing. The more creative the better! If you would like to see a skill taught or presentation on a specific topic, you have the ability to create it as a member of our community.

Ridgemont Academy offers an exciting opportunity for teens (12-18) who are self-directed, engaged and working towards a high school diploma. Our students are confident in their path and willing to work hard for their goals.
Our campus has room for collaboration and for independent study. At any given moment during a school day, you might see a few students taking an online class together, a few others participating in a study group, a few working independently and others taking a break or attending an opportunity.
If this sounds like a school designed especially for you we would love to see you at one of our open houses. If you have a question for us before the open house give us a call at 713-331-3891. Ridgemont Academy offers a community for self-directed education in Spring, TX for ages 12 to 18.
