Your Second Home
Find yourself, find your people
Western Reserve Academy has been ranked the #1 Boarding School and Private High School in Ohio and high among the nation's top boarding and day schools. 100 percent of our graduates go on to attend 4-year colleges or universities, many at the most selective schools in the world. Architectural Digest named WRA the most beautiful private school in Ohio. While we are proud of these accolades, we are more interested in your dreams and aspirations.
The Reserve Advantage
That's what it means to be at a boarding school. From the moment you step on WRA's campus, you'll notice something different. Our residential tradition means care is everywhere. And our Midwestern style exudes warmth. We also have a cozy downtown right at our doorstep so you're just seconds away from coffee shops, restaurants and making memories with your friends.
WRA is a place where opportunities to dream, achieve and contribute surround every student. Our beautiful galleries, stages and athletic facilities are the backdrop for culture, camaraderie and competition. Our connections to causes in our community and beyond invite Pioneers to make a difference, not for the sake of putting points on the board for college, but instead to leave permanent marks in their hearts and minds.
We are the first school in our region to move beyond Advanced Placement courses, ending the need to teach to the test and offering more immersive courses we call College Level. We're the only high school that offers cancer immunology courses and our students conduct research at Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic. We've also been named the best school in the state for STEM, thanks to our Wang Innovation Center, a 6,000-square-foot, hands-on, high-tech idea incubator.
