Why attend Stone Ridge? Some may say for the excellent academics, or for the one-of-a-kind Social Action program...for the quality arts program, strong athletics, leadership opportunities, all-girls, the Sacred Heart Network, or the long-standing traditions, etc. The real value of a Stone Ridge education is, in fact, that all of these things roll into one and make a unique and very special culture. Our Grade 7 students went to visit the District of Columbia Courts. Head of School Catherine Ronan Karrels’ 86 received a note from Mr. Rich Parris, Chief Security Officer at the Courts.

“Ms. Karrels - I give presentations to lots of visitors in the course of my duties - trade school, high school and college students; folks in law school; interns, law clerks, and people from other countries. Most with a thirst to learn; almost all with questions. I’m writing to tell you a couple of things you most surely already know. Your young ladies were incredible different.”  Read the entire letter.
