The history of the school dates to 1899 when Boulder Junior Academy was founded at the foothills north of Boulder Canyon.
In 2004 the old property in Boulder (on 4th Street) was sold and a new, state of the art, school was built in Erie. Why Christian Education? The question is practically eternal: why does one ultimately choose to attend a particular school and what do you want your student/family to take away from that experience? Particularly, why Vista Ridge Academy? A great school with a strong Christian foundation, strong faculty and staff and a committed community that embraces the organization as a whole.The historical and still very relevant answer is almost ridiculously simple and direct: to acquire the best Christ-filled education possible so that you can attain knowledge, skills, and personal character development that becomes the foundation of your life.

- Defining qualities and characteristics that you can build your life on, has a multitude of foundational components. The most common one is when students are exposed to opportunities to delimit themselves by discovering unknown strengths and achieving amazing personal growth, spiritually, academically and socially. But defining yourself also has another expression – that of building your personal confidence built on Jesus Christ and one that allows you to confront and participate in life in a highly effective manner. If you heartily and purposely commit to God’s will and allow Him to help in the of development of your core values and characters, your student will emerge as a young adult who will thoroughly understand that each and every student has an individual design laid out by the Creator of all things! It is all about finding a good fit. It is about finding the right school with the right foundation for the right (or intended) outcomes.

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.
