Founded by visionary women
Over 200 years ago, foundress St. Madeleine Sophie Barat believed in empowering girls with a solid academic foundation, a strong voice and the nurturing love of God. To that end, she founded the religious order, the Society of the Sacred Heart, to educate young women in France. Over the years, the Society expanded across the globe; and Forest Ridge continues to drive this mission to change the world–one girl at a time.
Enriched by faith diversity
Our Forest Ridge community is enriched with students who represent all major world religions. As a Sacred Heart school, we are called to educate to a personal and active faith in God and a deep respect for religions of the world, believing that faith diversity enriches our community.
"Let us respect childhood; let us honor the soul of that small creature of God who can already make choices of the best if we take the time to awaken her reason and make her use her judgment." St. Madeleine Sophie Barat
