A Preparatory School That Supports Your Son’s Success

Life as a student at Riverside Preparatory Academy isn’t just fun -- it’s meaningful and transformative. Of all the students who attend Riverside Prep, nearly all are boarding students. And as much as student life is about academics and athletics, it’s also about what happens outside of the classroom or practice facility.

What is Life Like at Riverside Prep?

Riverside Preparatory Academy is unique from other schools that use the military model of education 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 process of overcoming challenges, from difficult exams to advanced obstacle courses, is deeply gratifying -- and facing these challenges with fellow cadets is how lasting bonds are formed.

Riverside Prep offers a Leader Development Program where students learn and implement the art and science of leadership. In addition, Riverside students have access to several extracurricular clubs, activities, honor societies, and more which provide further opportunities to pursue personal interests. Participation in student groups also provides opportunities for cadets to get to know each other outside of the classroom.

A Home Away from Home
