Westridge is an independent, forward-thinking girls’ school committed to educating intellectually adventurous thinkers, and courageous, compassionate leaders. 

Our engaging and challenging curriculum prepares students to continue their education in college and beyond as discerning, motivated learners who are committed to excellence and goodness in everything they do. Essential to this work is the commitment to be a community that reflects and values diversity, respects individual differences, and responds to a changing dynamic world.

A Westridge education offers both a path to self-discovery and personal fulfillment and an awareness of the essential interdependence of all peoples, places, and cultures.

We strive to develop young women whose joy in learning, personal integrity, courage, compassion, and commitment to ethical action and social and environment responsibility, will lead them to meaningful lives as contributing citizens of the larger world.

We strive to prepare young women to live lives of meaning, contribution, and impact.
