A Forest Ridge education encourages thinking beyond borders of all kinds. We inspire students to challenge themselves intellectually and nurture their own spirituality.

Valuing curiosity, inquiry and investigation, each grade-level curriculum is designed to build the skills of flexible thinking, critical reasoning and purposeful collaboration. Our strong multidisciplinary curriculum is rich with integrated learning opportunities that push our students to apply their knowledge and skills in a variety of cross-curricular ways.

Forest Ridge educates all students to the highest academic standards while providing them with diverse opportunities to explore new intellectual horizons, delve deep into their academic interests and take ownership for their learning.

With a focus on uniting disciplinary knowledge and skills, while encouraging new ways of thinking, our academic and extracurricular programs ignite curiosity, creativity and purpose within our students, empowering each girl to pursue her intellectual journey.

Learning at Forest Ridge isn't just interdisciplinary, it's integrating multiple ways of thinking and doing. The more students can see that everything is connected, the better we are preparing them for what the world actually looks like now. We don't want girls to just get into college, we want them to succeed at college. We don't want them to just be able to get the jobs, we want them to thrive at their jobs and be change agents and innovators in their work.Courtney Caldwell, Director of teaching and learning
