ABOUT RIDGEVIEW CLASSICAL SCHOOLS: Founded in 2001, Ridgeview is a K-12, classical charter school located in Fort Collins, Colorado. It enrolls around 800 students annually and focuses on a true liberal arts education to develop the intellect and character of each of its students. Ridgeview offers an education that is rarely matched by other schools within the charter school community. It distinguishes itself first by its unequivocal commitment to the classical tradition. In this sense, classical means that Latin is taught from kindergarten, Greek is taught from third grade, and students learn root languages before they are taught derivatives such as French or Spanish. They learn to develop a thesis, to exegize a text, and to order their thinking, writing, and presentations according to a classical order of arrangement.
