Our Hometown

Reserve is unlike any other boarding school because besides our beautiful and historic campus, we have a charming town that’s just steps away and an extension of our school.

The town’s unmissable landmark - the Hudson Clock Tower - is in the middle of favorite hangouts, mixing the charm of a historic town with every modern amenity. Hudson’s streets, lined with restored century homes, also include shops, inns and dining options that round out the awesome offerings in our nook of Northeast Ohio.

Within 30 miles of campus is the city of Cleveland. Resting on the shores of Lake Erie, Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the spectacular Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Cavaliers and many other entertainment options such as concerts and restaurants. We also plan an annual trip to the Roller Coaster Capital of the World, Cedar Point.

WRA is located just minutes from the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Pioneer your outdoor spirit on the many hiking or biking trails, canoe or kayak on the river, horseback ride on the trails, or plan a picnic near breathtaking Brandywine Falls.

The CVNP is a national treasure, treasured by Reserve. Whether there for play or purpose (WRA students volunteer regularly in the park), we are proud to support the park and all it has to offer our students.

Every one of our students has a success story to tell. We can't wait to tell yours.
