Ridley College is a vibrant and busy place, where every student finds his or her niche quickly. Throughout the year, each student is encouraged to achieve his or her academic potential assisted by our dedicated faculty. He or she is also given the opportunity to take part in athletics, the arts, and leadership, and to live and interact within our highly respected house system.
Both the Upper School boarding and day students are directly associated with a Residential House. The houses at Ridley are very unique but all are run by highly motivated and dedicated Head of House. All faculty members are associated with our House system, which allows for the student body to interact with them outside of the classroom.
The comprehensive Residential Life Curriculum fosters a community of personal growth and the achievement of personal life skills. This aspect of the Ridley education results in a student body that understands and believes in themselves, having developed “wellness for life”. In this way, the Ridley College education is not just about gaining the knowledge of facts, but also the knowledge of core values and life skills.
In order to achieve the best possible residential experience, a varied weekend program is planned for the students on campus, who benefit immensely from taking part in these programs.
Ridley College sets a benchmark of excellence for boarding and day schools and we are proud of our accomplishments. We welcome you to actively participate in this great school.
