A Note from our
Admissions Director
Jennifer McCary, Admissions Director
Thank you for your interest in Stone Ridge Christian School !  

We are a comprehensive Christian school that serves the greater Merced area.  Our aim is to provide excellent education through the lens of faith–in the classroom, on the playing field, at work in the community.  We measure our students’ success by the way they interact, their confidence and enthusiasm, the choices they make, and the lives they lead.

Choosing a school that is right for you and your student is an important decision.  The best way to find out if Stone Ridge Christian is right for your family is to visit.  We encourage you to attend an Info Knight, schedule a personal tour of our campus, or have your son or daughter shadow another student.  We’d love to have you.  Come see in person what makes Stone Ridge Christian a special place.
Our Admissions Director can answer your questions, show you what we have to offer, and guide you through the application process.
