Hartridge Academy


Great News! 2017-2018 lottery applications for our waiting pool are still available!



Congratulations to Hartridge students and staff as they celebrate over fifteen years of  academic success as a parental choice in free public education for Polk County families!

   The success of our former students is the most authentic and consistent evidence of our popular award winning program. For those who choose to measure simply by a school grade, Hartridge has been awarded an "A" in all but two years when a "B" was awarded.

    Despite a waiting pool of applicants that could double our enrollment, we choose to remain a small school.  The benefits of each staff member knowing each child and parent has proven to be a strong ingredient for student success and safety.  Our scheduling for one on one time for each family throughout the year strengthens the learning process as well as the home to school relationship. 



Hartridge Academy is an elementary school (K-5) with traditional academic subjects, ESE inclusion, single gender class opportunities, gifted program, grade combination classes, and accelerated curriculum classes.  

APPLICATIONS for SCHOOL YEAR 2016/2017 are still available and can be added to our waiting pool.  APPLICATIONS for our first 2017/2018 school year  lottery must be postmarked by November 9, 2016. Applications continue to be accepted all year but the first drawing is only for those postmarked by November 9, 2016.
