VRA Strong

Why We Need Your Support

Vista Ridge Academy provides Christian education to students throughout the north Denver metro area to carry out our mission to provide holistic Christ-centered elementary education, encouraging children to think creatively and critically, problem-solve and explore, collaborate with others, and develop strong character in accordance with our core values.

On March 30, 2020, Vista Ridge Academy moved to Remote Learning as our state, country, and world continues to face an ongoing pandemic. We pray daily that our communities remain strong and healthy.

Vista Ridge Academy (formerly Boulder Junior Academy) has weathered many storms, but because of an actively strong support system, we are confident that we will move through this as united community.

While our educational process is a bit different right now, we are still committed to our mission and vision and making sure our students receive the best education possible from a distance.

Your support helps Vista Ridge Academy remain an outstanding Seventh-day Adventist Christian educational institution, and we solicit your ongoing support. In addition to your prayers and words of encouragement, we have created a list of our most urgent needs. Thank you for partnering with us to remain VRAstrong.


After a century of educating over thousands of children within Boulder County, the school’s Board of Directors was challenged with the rapid growth of young families living in the north Denver Metro area. Motivated by a desire to better serve future generations, the Board adopted a bold new plan to create Vista Ridge Academy.

Vista Ridge Academy is conveniently located in a modern development northwest of the I-25 and I-470 interchange near Sheridan Parkway and Highway 7. The school name was changed to Vista Ridge Academy and was moved to the new location in February of 2004.

Since the first school year nearly 15 years ago, Vista Ridge Academy has taught more than 600 students in the North Denver Metro area.
