  • Founded in 1907 and designated an International Baccalaureate Programme World School in 2011, Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic, all-girls, independent, college-preparatory school serving students grades 5 through 12.
  • As a member of the worldwide Network of Sacred Heart Schools, we educate each student to the following goals: a personal and active faith in God; a deep respect for intellectual values; a social awareness which impels to action; the building of community as a Christian value; and personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.
  • It is the essence of a Sacred Heart school that it be deeply concerned for each student's total development: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical.
  • Forest Ridge provides a challenging academic environment that embraces students of diverse cultural, religious and socio-economic backgrounds.
  • We develop confident young women who are responsible, creative and compassionate.
  • Our community strives to bring hope and justice to the world.
