On September 6th, we commenced our 10th academic year at Richland Academy! When we first opened our doors in September 2002, we had 9 students. We have since grown to over 110 students, which we treat with the same care and consideration. We are proud to provide an engaging and experiential learning environment for our students, using the Reggio-inspired approach to inquiry learning. We maximize every child’s potential by offering an enriched and superior curriculum, nurturing inner virtues, fostering a sense of social responsibility, and encouraging a love for learning that transcends the boundaries of our school. We are proud of our reputation for providing an enriched curriculum and academic excellence.
Here is a summary of our milestones and future goals:
- September 2002: First opened our doors at our previous location in Oak Ridges with 9 students.
- September 2005: Moved to our current Richmond Hill location.
- September 2010: Became the first private elementary school in York Region to embrace the Reggio Approach to inquiry learning.
- 2013: Plans to expand our facilities to allow for additional classrooms, science labs, offices, and lounges for teachers, parents, and students, respectively.
