Western Reserve Academy has a long history with Aramco and we work closely with families to make sure they find their best high school fit for their child at Reserve. WRA is a dynamic, challenging, and supportive place that has committed to excellence, integrity and compassion since 1826. One-hundred percent of our graduates attend the country’s best colleges and universities.
A mid-sized, coed, boarding and day school for grades 9-12, WRA offers exceptional academics, superior programs and lifelong friends, with students drawn from 24 states and 20 countries. We are a diverse community and award more than $5 million in need-based financial aid every year.
We're located in charming and historic Hudson, Ohio, an extension of campus with more than 50 upscale stores, restaurants and coffee shops. WRA is also a less than two-hour flight time from Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
Known for our academic excellence, this year we begin a fully independent curriculum that allows for deeper learning and endless opportunity. The new curriculum, lauded by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), includes College Level courses, which surpass Advanced Placement classes in depth and rigor and align us with a growing cohort of the country’s best independent and boarding schools who have ended APs and are de-emphasizing “teaching to the test” in favor of more experiential and collaborative learning. Read more about the distinctive WRA curriculum.
WRA allows for growth outside of the classroom, too. Our robust athletics program invites all students to participate in sports and includes 45 separate interscholastic teams in 24 sports. Classes in yoga, dance, tai chi and weightlifting provide alternative ways of staying active and fit. Even more, our arts program presents numerous opportunities for performances in dance, music, theatre and showings in the visual arts. From novice to expert, the athlete and the artist are given every opportunity at WRA.
Life at the school takes place against the backdrop of our beautiful 190-acre campus. Our home city of Hudson is a safe extension of the campus, as it combines a New England-style charm with the welcoming spirit of the Midwest and the conveniences of close-by cities. Our students appreciate the short walk to Hudson’s beautiful town center for dinner or ice cream with friends.
