—Juan, Entered Ridley as a Grade 10 student
“Before I came here I did not know how to study on my own. Everything I needed to know I memorized. Once I came to Ridley I learned to understand the subjects and learned how to teach myself. Ridley has not only prepared me academically, but made me more mature. Before coming here, I didn’t know how to fly alone. I didn’t know how to make a bed or how to do laundry. These are basic little things that Ridley has you do that makes a person more mature and prepares them for the real world."
