School Notes

  • Originally founded in Seattle in 1907 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart and currently located in Bellevue, Washington, Forest Ridge educates and inspires girls and young women in 5th through 12th grades. Both a day and boarding school, Forest Ridge is the only Sacred Heart school in the Pacific Northwest. We are a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school, and a recognized pioneer in all-girl high school and middle school education. Easily accessible from the nearby areas of Newcastle, Sammamish, Kirkland, Redmond, Renton & Woodinville, we're proud to welcome students from the Greater Seattle area, and from around Western Washington.  Forest Ridge graduates women who change the world.
  • A great strength of our school is the expertise and dedication of our faculty and staff. Student-focused, passionate, and innovating, they continually apply best practices and new thinking in Teaching and Learning to open wide the mind of each student in anticipation of the world they will fully join after graduation.
  • School accreditations: NWAIS, WFIS, Sacred Heart Network of Schools
