Under Construction: Lightridge HS

Shockey is building the newest public high school in Loudoun County in the Dulles South area of the county (the fastest-growing county in Virginia). Built using the county’s (LCPS) new two-story high school design prototype, the 305,000 SF structure’s stunning design features a mix of masonry and glass. Lightridge High School will serve students in grades 9 through 12 and will help relieve overcrowding.

Lightridge includes classrooms, a media center, a cafeteria, an auditorium/theater, a greenhouse, main and auxiliary gyms, a lighted stadium, baseball and softball fields, and lighted tennis courts, as well as practice and physical education fields and track and field facilities.

Sustainable systems include natural and LED lighting with daylight sensors, high-efficiency condensing water heaters and low-flow fixtures.

The school, built for an anticipated program capacity of 1,800 students, is located on Collaboration Drive in Aldie, near Braddock Road. In accordance with county zoning requirements, 50% of the 151-acre site will be preserved as open space.

Lightridge High School will open at the start of the 2020-2021 academic year.
