Principal's Message



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Melissa Durkin

Welcome to all of our new and returning families for the 2022-2023 school year! Last year we worked hard to transition our learners, coaches, and families back into a regular school routine. Our state testing results demonstrated evidence that we were able to make up for any learning loss that occurred during the COVID pandemic. We are in a great place to start the year strong.  

This past spring, Ranger High-Tech Academy went through the STEM redesignation process, which occurs every five years, and received wonderful feedback on all of the amazing things that are happening at RHTA. We anticipate receiving this redesignation prior to the start of the school year, along with the addition of an arts designation to officially transition RHTA from a STEM to STEAM school. The momentum that we started during the 2021-2022 school year will continue to build and we are looking forward to a year full of authentic learning experiences and academic growth. 
Enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year at Ranger High-Tech Academy is complete.  We will open up applications for the 2023-2024 school year in January 2023. Please keep an eye on our website for more information.  Thank you for your support and commitment to STE(A)M education in North Ridgeville!

Thank you,  
Ms. Durkin
