THIS

IS

RIDGEWRX

It's not a class. It's not sitting still for an hour doing busy work. It's more than this. It's an opportunity for students of all levels to work on meaningful, real-world projects. These projects are then tied into the standards for a collection of classes to complete the credits.

 
How do I know if RidgeWRX is the right fit for me?
  • I want to use my time in school for more purposeful work

  • I find traditional classrooms disengaging and/or boring 

  • I want to knock out a bunch of graduation requirements without taking the rather boring classes 

  • I learn much better when I am able to work with my hands 

 
What's in it for me?

30 class credits.
