The Pacific Ridge Experience

Excellence Through Challenge

At Pacific Ridge, students in grades 6 through 12 are exposed to experiences that inspire their curiosity to keep learning and the determination to achieve the extraordinary.

Through a combination of interactive coursework, educational travel, service projects, and student-led activities, students are empowered to experiment with new ideas and interests, pursue their passions, and develop their voice. An encouraging community behind them connects support with motivation, giving students the opportunity to test and refine their skills through collaboration and dialogue. Whether it’s navigating the bustling streets of an international city or developing a service project for their home community, Pacific Ridge students are able to lead their path to learning, confident in the resources and inspiration they are offered along the way.

Community of Care

I am surrounded by people who really care about school, really care about each other, and really care about everything in between."- middle school student

Embracing the Unknown

Sending me to Pacific Ridge was honestly one of the best decisions my parents ever made. The best way I can say it is that Pacific Ridge makes change makers – the kind of people who understand the big picture and care about it enough to have a positive impact."- Alumnus

Opportunities to Explore

I'm really interested in science, both in class and in clubs, but at Pacific Ridge I was also able to help run a global magazine, play two sports through high school, try Model UN and travel to different countries. I had the time to explore my interests and figure out how I want to incorporate them into my life."  - ALUMNA
