For over a century, Riverside has been the preeminent college preparatory, military academy in the nation. While others have faded away or softened their approach, Riverside has thrived. We believe it is because we know who we are, what we do, and who we serve. As an independent, all-boys, military boarding school, we are about as niche as you get. We embrace those four things and seek to deliver the best educational experience for our cadets in partnership with our wonderful parent and alumni communities.
Looking for Something More
If you are looking at this page, you are probably looking for something different. You are likely looking for more than what you are finding in local public or private day schools. If you are like most families we speak with, you are probably looking for more structure, more opportunity, more diversity, more sports, more fine arts, more leadership development, more focus, more challenge, or more academic support to name a few of the most common “mores” we hear.
We invite you to visit campus and speak to our faculty and staff. You will find that Riverside offers much more to help your son reach his full potential.
A School That Supports Your Son’s Success
Riverside is unique from other military schools in that it teaches students the personal values of honor, patriotism, and selflessness not only through the discipline and structure of a traditional military school environment but also through every facet of cadet life.
The Title IX statute exempts from its coverage the admissions practices of non-vocational elementary and secondary schools. Accordingly, the regulations do not prohibit recipients from adopting single-sex admissions policies in non-vocational elementary and secondary schools. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 reads: No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. Riverside Preparatory Academy complies with Title IX.
