Ridna Shkola at the Church of Uspenia Bozoji Materi existed from 1950-1973. In 1973, the school became independent from the church and took on the name of Metropolitan Andrei Sheptycky. At this  time the Ridna Shkola existed separately from the Kursy Ukrajinoznavstva, although both carried the same names. In 1992, the Ridna Shkola and the Kursy Ukrajinoznavstva 
fused together. In 2000, we divided the Ridna Shkola curriculum into the Academia and Movna.
