- At Vista Ridge Academy we believe that a relationship with Jesus is the foundation of all our other relationships; and a desire to live for the glory of God inspires us to do our best in all our pursuits. Weekly chapels provide our students with a valuable time of worship and instruction in God's word that serves to build upon that important foundation.
- Small student-to-teacher ratios provide maximum opportunity for individualized instruction in our classrooms. Our experienced faculty are dedicated not only to the academic growth of our students, but also to the development of important life skills.
- We believe that the arts play a crucial role in building strong minds. In addition to weekly music and art classes, Vista Ridge offers the opportunity for students to participate in band, choir and Strings of the Rockies, sponsored in part by Avista Adventist Hospital, which provides violin instruction for all of our students in grades 1-6.
- Partnerships are important to us. Whether with our constituent churches, fellow Adventist schools, or local organizations, students and faculty actively seek ways to volunteer, serve and get involved. Students develop close friendships through these activities which reach out to their own communities and beyond.

Last year we enrolled our son in Kindergarten at Vista Ridge Academy. We were thrilled to find a thriving fine arts program and even spanish emersion program in the Kindergarten program! The teachers are committed to their students but more importantly, the teachers are committed to sharing Jesus. We couldn't be happier with our choice of school. This year we will have two of our kids attending as they have recently opened a Pre-K program.

My oldest boy of 5 goes to Kindergarten at Vista Ridge Academy. The personal one on one attention his teacher gives him is so great. Leading kids to Christ is evident in all they do. We are so grateful to have found a home for our kids where we know they can grow to their full potential.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
