Why Your Support Matters

Independent schools often are asked why families should make a donation in addition to tuition, especially when beautiful facilities and expansive programs seem to reflect ample resources. This question goes to the heart of your philanthropic giving.

Tuition does not cover the full cost of educating our students. Westridge can provide its top quality education and maintain its beautiful campus precisely because of your giving, which builds upon a 106-year history of philanthropy. These funds allow us to balance our budget each year while planning for students’ educational needs next year and next decade.


At Westridge, you are taught to follow your dreams. At Westridge, you are taught to be unstoppable.

— Sophia K., class of 2019
