Ridge Kids Academy is expanding. On June 1, 2022 we opened a new location at 6330 US Rt. 60 East, Barboursville, WV 25504. The new 35,000 square foot space has allowed RKA to grow from 147 children to 313. In 2023 we partnered with MHN and open two center in August. These two centers service children and grandchildren of medical professionals.

As we continue to grow, and greatly improve our goals, we are currently accepting donations to help alleviate that debt. This money will be to offset the costs of a new playground for the Barboursville center. Ridge Kids Academy is a non-profit, state-licensed child development entity covered by liability insurance. RKA has met requirements to be a WVDHHR Tier I status program. Please be in prayer for us as we continue this project. Contact us for more information about how you can contribute or take a look at our Partners in Education page .

How it all started...

Ridge Kids Academy, Inc. Started in August of 1993. This was a ministry of Pea Ridge Baptist Church. Although we have always worked to foster the spiritual, physical, and academic needs of children we have come a long way since we opened our doors. We will soon be celebrating our thirtieth anniversary. We have grown exponentially since 1993. From approximately  twenty-one  students to 147 children a day.
