The Eagle is not only our mascot, but a constant reminder of our purpose here. When a storm approaches, the eagle uses wind gusts to soar high above while the storm rages below. The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm’s force to its advantage and rises high above the destructive elements. No other bird soars higher than the eagle.
At West Ridge Academy, we have helped over 25,000 troubled teens and their families rise above sickness, addiction, failure, disappointment and the challenging circumstances from the storms of life.
