The Ridgefield Academy and Landmark Preschool community celebrates childhood, pursues excellence, and cultivates kindness. Our educational program is intellectually inspiring, and we foster joyful learning and mutual respect in all that we do. We empower each student to rise to their authentic self, preparing confident graduates who shape their future with ingenuity and integrity.
At Ridgefield Academy and Landmark Preschool, we celebrate the diversity of our school community, as well as the regional and global communities beyond our campus. We prepare students to navigate a changing world with agility and to understand their responsibility to foster connections with people of different cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives.
Our community provides a place for individuals to be safe as their authentic selves, to have a voice, and to be valued for whom they are. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging must exist as natural components of our overall educational program, cultivating a community rooted in mutual respect and kindness.
We are committed to intentionally building and advancing an equitable and just community – students, their families, faculty, staff, and trustees – that models the respect and individuality that we want to see in the society around us. By working toward being fully inclusive, we strengthen our ties to each other and model ethical scholarship, leadership, and global citizenship.
