Ridgeline Academy’s exceptional commitment to providing unique learning experiences inside and outside the classroom sets it apart. This summer, over 40 Ridgeline students had once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
The academy arranged two separate international trips for two different student-teacher groups. The first was a 10-day tour of Japan, exploring Osaka, Kyoto, Takayama, and Tokyo. The students toured temples, participated in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, and crafted their own chopsticks. The trip concluded with a bullet train ride back to Tokyo, followed by a karaoke evening. As many of Ridgeline’s students have been studying Japanese for several years, this proved to be a wonderful way to immerse themselves in the culture.
The second group journeyed to France and Italy. During this 10-day trip, students visited renowned landmarks in Paris such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, and The Louvre. Subsequently, they traversed to Italy, exploring Florence, Pisa, and Milan, viewing numerous cathedrals, browsing local shops, and savoring delicious local cuisine. Ridgeline Academy is thrilled to provide these international experiences to its high school students, with upcoming trips planned for Greece and the Galapagos Islands in 2024 and 2025, respectively.
Additionally, Ridgeline’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) students competed at the FBLA nationals in Atlanta, Georgia. The academy’s middle school critical thinking team ranked seventh nationwide out of hundreds of teams – a feat Ridgeline is immensely proud of. Besides the competition, students also enjoyed visiting Six Flags, The World of Coca-Cola, The Georgia Aquarium, and the Football Hall of Fame Museum.
Following a summer filled with travel and memorable experiences, Ridgeline Academy looks forward to welcoming back all the Eagles for the 2023-2024 academic year.
