Our Community

Richland Academy / Our Community

Richland’s extraordinary culture of caring

is part of what sets us apart. Working together, our students, parents, faculty and staff have created a nurturing school community that offers every child a sense of belonging and fosters a sense of social and environmental responsibility.

​In academic, artistic, athletic and public service activities alike, our students collaborate across classrooms. Older students may mentor younger ones, and school-wide efforts involve everyone working towards a common goal.

Our focus on community life not only enriches your child’s learning experience, it also creates a foundation where deep, long-lasting friendships are formed between children of different ages and diverse backgrounds.

“While there are many individual components we think that make Richland great, we believe that what you have created is a true example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.  The Reggio method, your staff, small class size, beautiful facility,extraordinary communication with your families blend together in a way that is truly special.”
