Under Construction: LCPS

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

Lightridge will include classrooms, a media center, a cafeteria, an auditorium/theater, a greenhouse, main and auxiliary gyms, lighted stadium, baseball and softball fields, and lighted tennis courts, as well as practice and physical education fields and track and field facilities, built for an anticipated program capacity of 1,800 students.

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

The school is located on Collaboration Drive in Aldie, near Braddock Road and Northstar Boulevard. In accordance with county zoning requirements, 50% of the 151-acre site will be preserved as open space.

Lightridge High School received funding in fiscal year 2018 and will open at the start of the 2020-2021 academic year.
