Principal's Message

Welcome to the website for Eagle Ridge Academy in Brighton, CO! I am so excited to serve the students, staff, and community at Eagle Ridge Academy! While education looks a little different than we have all become accustomed to, I believe that the 2020-2021 school year holds great opportunities for our staff and students.


As we start this year online, ERA is taking our mission (College Prep) to heart. At some point, during a student’s collegiate career, it is highly likely that they will take an online course. With this in mind, our phenomenal staff has taken an approach to online learning that will simulate a collegiate experience as much as possible through the use of Google Classroom. In doing so, we aim to prepare our students even more for their future expeditions in life! Check out our Fall Learning Plan here (also available in Spanish here).


The ERA staff is ready to make a positive difference in the lives of our students. We will set high expectations in all aspects of their lives. We will challenge them to think outside of the box and to be creative problem solvers. We will celebrate their successes and support them when life presents its challenges. We will teach them to be goal setters and lifelong learners. In doing so, we will create a school culture that is positive, inclusive, and perhaps most importantly, fun!


Welcome Warriors to the 2020-2021 school year!

Principal and Head of School
