Unlike most private schools, Ribet Academy (pronounced rib-BAY) is a for-profit corporation, owned entirely by Ronald Sires--now in a protracted divorce--and the man he is suing for alleged embezzlement, Gerd Heymann.

Ribet Academy is in La Canada, but the way the Fighting Frogs' boys' basketball team has been scoring points lately, the campus should be moved to Century City.

The Fighting Frogs set a school record for points in a 125-29 victory over Pacific Christian on Thursday, then beat Antelope Valley Christian, 125-51, on Saturday.
