Student Life at Stone Ridge
Rooted in the charism and ethos of the Sacred Heart, the Student Life program at Stone Ridge works to form student leaders who carry out the mission. By helping them to find their own voices and purpose within an “atmosphere of wise freedom” and through the lens of bringing the heart of Christ to the world, our student leaders exemplify doing good for the collective whole.

“If we want integrity of character, steadiness, reliability, courage, thoroughness, all the harder qualities that serve as backbone, we, at least, make others want them by the power of example that is not set as deliberate good example, for that is as tame as precept; but the example of the life that is lived, and the truths that are honestly believed in.”
Learn more about our program and opportunities through the following student examples of the “life that is lived.“
