Ridgefield’s Wisdom Ridge Academy opens new building

The Columbian

RIDGEFIELD — The 2021-2022 school year is the inaugural year for Ridgefield School District’s newest school, Wisdom Ridge Academy. This flexible alternative learning program for grades K-12 has more than 160 students enrolled. Thanks to a partnership with the Port of Ridgefield, Wisdom Ridge Academy is housed in a newly constructed building with access to many shared resources including classroom and meeting spaces, workshops and training opportunities.

The school is at 5645 S. 11th St., Suite A-101. In addition to Wisdom Ridge, the port-owned building also provides space for the school district’s Innovation Ridge Center for Advanced Professional Studies program. The airy, open classrooms and flexible meeting and learning areas offer a variety of ways to configure each space.

The new building also includes recording and audio/video studios, an engineering/fabrication lab, and a health science/biomedical classroom that can be used across multiple programs for Ridgefield schools and the Port of Ridgefield.

The port’s training center is located on the other side of the building, allowing students to take advantage of training and partnership opportunities with the port and area businesses.

Wisdom Ridge Academy is a choice program that is focused on serving the Ridgefield community and requires a high level of parental/family involvement. Its mission is to provide high-quality, flexible learning options that suit the needs of individual students and their families.
