Head's Welcome

On behalf of the Southridge community I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope the information contained within these pages will show you why Southridge is such an important place of growth, opportunity, and spirit for so many people – students, parents, and teachers.

Personal growth is central to our focus at Southridge. Our students are not only immersed in a challenging academic environment, but they are also expected to make a contribution to the spirit of their school through their character, and to engage wholeheartedly in school life.

Our Service, Arts, Athletics and Outdoor Education programs provide character-building opportunities and are a fundamental part of our well-rounded curriculum. At Southridge, students embrace and explore these opportunities, and through them, learn to respond meaningfully and with integrity to the choices they face on a regular basis.

As part of their personal growth, our students develop an understanding of the power of interdependence – and it is through interdependence, or relationships, that Southridge realizes its vision to Let Every Spirit Soar. When we engage with others with the aim of elevating their spirit, our own spirit soars, and when we live together with integrity, we make a positive difference in the world.

Southridge is a place of significance. It is a place where students grow academically and personally – exploring, embracing, and sharing their own unique qualities and gifts. It is a place of personal fulfillment and contribution to the greater good. It is a place where youth actively make an intentional positive difference in the world.
