Loudoun County PS: Lightridge High School

Although school has looked different this year because of the pandemic, Shockey recently built 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 serves students in grades 9 through 12 and was built to help relieve overcrowding. The facility 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 is located on Collaboration Drive in Aldie, near Braddock Road. In accordance with county zoning requirements, 50% of the 151-acre site was preserved as open space.
