Richland Academy is a warm and welcoming International Baccalaureate (IB) World school in Richmond Hill, Ontario. We are a 21st century learning community that embraces the Reggio approach to inquiry-based learning and provides opportunities for our students to develop keen critical thinking skills as they explore, investigate, collaborate and communicate with one another from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8.
