At Westridge, girls have many opportunities to discover themselves as leaders.
All aspects of our program are designed to foster leadership in its many styles, from quiet to bold. Here, students are immersed in a culture in which all leadership roles go to girls, which creates more opportunities for them to lead and more female role models in leadership positions; there are nearly 150 student leadership roles in a variety of areas.
Student government opportunities are available in Lower, Middle, and Upper School. Girls are also student publication editors, event organizers, athletic captains, ensemble leaders, and heads of student clubs.
Beyond the quintessential roles available to them, girls have a multitude of more unconventional leadership opportunities in and out of the classroom. Our students are empowered to run group projects, plan class activities, and volunteer with community service agencies such as Friends In Deed, Mothers' Club, Union Station, and the Pasadena Humane Society.
It's like a leadership academy, but not in the traditional sense. Here they figure out a way for every type of girl to be a leader.
