LCPS: Lightridge High School

Shockey recently built the newest public high school in Loudoun County in the Dulles South area. Built using LCPS’s new two-story high school design prototype, the 305,000-SF structure’s stunning design features a mix of masonry and glass, with interior courtyards and curtain wall facades to provide broad access to natural light. Sustainable systems include natural and LED lighting with daylight sensors, high-efficiency condensing water heaters, and low-flow fixtures.

Lightridge High School serves students in grades 9 through 12 and was built to help relieve overcrowding in the fastest-growing county in the state. Shockey built 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.

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.
