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.

Members of the Stone Ridge soccer team, along with varsity head coach Katie Jo Spisak and JV head coach Ashley McGaughey, were invited to the White House to watch the 2013 MLS League champion Sporting Kansas City be recognized by President Barack Obama.
