Why choose Westridge? Because girls are the future.

Because becoming a Westridge girl means more than just receiving an outstanding education; it means becoming a curious thinker and a compassionate person who knows herself and her values, and thinks about how she will make her mark on the world.

Because everything we do is based on what is best for girls and their education, and rooted in the belief that a thoughtful academic program combined with a commitment to leadership, personal integrity, and ethical action is a foundation for a happy, meaningful, and productive life.

Because Westridge girls are comfortable being themselves and that frees them up for a world of learning.

Because at Westridge, learning is challenging and fun.

Westridge taught me to be fearless. As a woman who has built her career on a platform of non-traditional and typically male-dominated disciplines like video game audio, game design and production, Westridge empowered me to break down traditional barriers and demonstrated to me that I truly could do anything I wanted to do.

As a parent of two recent Westridge graduates, I have observed the intellectual and personal growth of my daughters. They have evolved into stellar young women who are thoroughly prepared for college, have developed their voice, and are seeking to enrich the world around them.
