Victory Ridge Academy is a proud affiliate of the Federal Title I program. The goal of Title I is to improve student achievement through effective instruction, professional development, and family involvement. Parent involvement provides that communication is regular, two-way, and meaningful and that the communication involves student learning or other school activities. More information may be found in our School Improvement Plan. Please also take a moment to review our 2019 Parent Feedback Survey.
