From the Head of School

On behalf of the Forest Ridge community, I am delighted to welcome you to the Forest Ridge website. I hope that it will convey to you the excitement and vitality that is Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart. Exciting things are going on in the 106-year-old life of Forest Ridge.

We continue to work together with our board members, faculty, staff, alumnae, parents, students and friends to evaluate our facilities and programming in a prayerful and deliberate fashion and work toward continuing to provide the most effective and forward-thinking education possible for the students we serve, including launching a new campus master planning process. 

This year, we also welcome several new faculty, staff and administrators who bring a variety of skills, experience and fresh perspectives to our campus community.  And, there is a great excitement growing around our Women as Global Leaders Program as we come to an understanding that Women as Global Leaders is woven into the fabric of our school!
I hope your journey through this portal will provide you with a taste of what makes Forest Ridge not only a school of excellence, but a familiar and welcoming place to our alumnae and friends.
