The Upper School at Ridgecroft provides students with a dynamic and nurturing community in which to holistically grow. Through personalized guidance and a range of opportunities, our students find their paths to excellence at Ridgecroft in and out of the classroom. As a small community, we do not have many “specialists;” our athletes are artists, our musicians are student leaders, and our scholars are volunteers. Academically, our students’ days are filled with challenge and opportunity as they make the most of a variety of offerings, including AP, Honors, and Dual-enrollment courses, and electives in the fine and performing arts. Our successful athletic teams also give our Ridgecroft “Rams” the chance to contend for championships and learn lifelong lessons about teamwork, perserverance, and leadership.
During their four years in the Upper School, students experience academic rigor balanced with a healthy dose of athletics, arts, leadership, and service opportunities. Mentored by teachers who instruct with skill and compassion, students find their voices and form lasting relationships with their peers as they complete a transformational journey – one that not only prepares them for success in college and career, but also enables them to grow in confidence and self-knowledge, ready to impact the world as the leaders of tomorrow.
