Residential Life

The opportunity to attend a residential life boarding program is a life chang­ing experience where young women are allowed to find who they are in a safe, nurturing environment. Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart is such a place, offering an on-campus residential life program for students. The Residential Life dormitory is located at the north end of the campus adjacent to the upper parking lot.
The Residential Life Boarding Program attracts students from all over the globe. Our residents have been citizens from the USA, Germany, China, Canada, Mexico, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, and Thailand. Forest Ridge Boarding Students are academic achievers who have a strong desire to succeed and to contrib­ute to the Sacred Heart community. Forest Ridge offers a student body with diverse national and international backgrounds, not only through the Residential Life program, but through an extensive exchange program.  Exchange students may reside in the dorm for up to four weeks and are from our Sacred Heart sister schools around the world.
