Study @ Ridgeway Preparatory

Ridgeway Preparatory College prepares students to be responsible, globally-minded, compassionate, and reflective learners. Our rigorous academic programme creates space and time for critical reflection on basic questions about what is good, fair, and just. We teach to the heart as well as the mind.
