Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

The philosophy of Ridgewood is to provide a total education to help form the complete individual. To implement its philosophy, the Ridgewood faculty focuses its talents on the practical fulfillment of these goals:

Growth in intellectual skills--critical thinking, thoughtful analysis and expression, computation, accurate and interpretative reading.
Awareness of both the physical and social worlds, their natures and histories, their problems and prospects.
Deepened appreciations in aesthetics, philosophy, and religion.
Responsible participation in the home and in organized society.
Preparation for occupational choice, usually at the professional level
