One hundred years ago, the pioneering spirit of Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat inspired the sisters at the Convent of the Sacred Heart on Massachusetts Avenue to open a school, which began with three young women in attendance. 

Today, Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart is inspiring more than 700 girls and young women in grades 1–12 (and a co-ed Pre-K through Kindergarten program) to lead and serve through lives of purpose that integrate faith, intellect, community, social action and personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.


Set atop 35 beautifully landscaped acres in Bethesda, Maryland, Stone Ridge offers a peaceful campus for girls to learn, play, pray, compete and grow. Stone Ridge is more than a school. It is a community of learners, friends, educators and leaders.
