Meadow Ridge Academy Microschool Photo #1
Have you heard of micro-schools, pandemic learning pods, or one-room school houses? If so, then we are excited to share an introduction to a little one room school opening fall of 2021 in the Salt Lake Valley of Utah. Meadow Ridge Academy will offer a full-time private school.
We are also a "Powered by Prenda" school option if that model works better for your family. Check out our FAQ on our website to learn more.
Once the class is full for the private school, then a la carte classes for independent charter school and home-school students will be offered.
At Meadow Ridge Academy we will be teaching a Judeo-Christian Classical education using the Principle Approach in a one-room school.
For our first year we will be teaching 5th through 8th grades.
The vision and mission of Meadow Ridge Academy is to provide an individualized, mastery-based, classical Christian education for youth ages 11 through 19. We do this in partnership with the parents of the youth.

School Notes

  • Please explore the Frequently Asked Questions on our website to get to know our school better.
  • Meadow Ridge Academy provides the teacher-parent-student connection and commitment to help young scholars reach their educational goals.  In a one-room school the focus is on mastery, not competition.  We want your children to maintain or even strengthen your family's shared values, therefore we do not practice any current forms of social engineering in the classroom.  The heart of our little school is academics, a Christian world-view, and preparing for college-level work.  Whether or not your child chooses to attend college, she will be prepared to enter the "great conversation" of ideas that mankind has been discussing since the beginning of time.
