Thank for your interest in Western Reserve Academy!

Founded in 1826, Western Reserve Academy (WRA) is Ohio’s top boarding and day school. We are a diverse, dynamic and close-knit community comprised of 400 students hailing from 26 states and 17 countries. Reserve’s innovative independent curriculum is led by an engaged and supportive faculty, most of whom reside on campus. Our students fully immerse themselves as leaders and learners in academic, extracurricular and social realms.

Located in Hudson, Reserve’s 190-acre campus was recently named the most beautiful private high school in Ohio by Architectural Digest. Campus is a quick walk to downtown and a short ride to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Cleveland. Our prime location allows for amazing educational and recreational opportunities both on and off campus.

We look forward to learning more about you through the admission process!
