Ridgeview Classical Schools is a K-12 classical, liberal arts school serving roughly 800 students. The school employs the Core Knowledge sequence in the elementary school, and a classical curriculum in grades seven through twelve emphasizing small class sizes, Socratic discussions, and the reading of core texts. Ridgeview employs teachers with subject-specific degrees and offers three weeks of teacher training every August for its entire faculty as well as ongoing training throughout the year for new teachers to ensure that students are exposed to teachers who are passionate masters of their disciplines. At Ridgeview, the academic education provided to every student is as important as the character education, a point Ridgeview stands behind through a rigorous curriculum and forthright discussion of the virtues in and out of the classrooms.
