Help us continue to shape the men
who will shape the future.

We invite alumni, families, and friends of the academy to join us as we work to sustain our mission of providing the best all-boys, independent, military-inspired education available. Your gifts make it possible for boys from all backgrounds to reveal and achieve their greatest potential.

Graduates of Riverside take their leadership skills, their determination, and their honor with them as they go on to make a valuable impact in their communities, in the lives of others, and in the world as a whole. The scholarships and need-based tuition programs we are able to offer through your generous contributions are what make this impact possible. Your donations also go toward maintaining and enriching the entire cadet experience, allowing us to preserve our tradition of excellence and strengthen our capabilities as we look toward the future.

From the Vice President for Advancement

Although Riverside Preparatory Academy has a history of preparing young men for success for well over 100 years, it was 2009 before Riverside aggressively pursued a Development program. While hard to believe, some administrations discouraged cadets from returning after graduation, and not only discouraged donations but actually returned them to their donors.
Things are much different today. Alumni are coming back and giving back, and the Academy welcomes them with open arms! As Riverside builds on its strong history to produce leaders for a fast-paced age of global citizenry encompassing business, technology, and the arts, all grounded in character and ethics, the Brothers in Blue are joining in.
Generous contributions from alumni, families, and friends make a difference. Through the provision of partial scholarships for need-based tuition, donors help qualifying families enroll their sons. Additionally, philanthropy helps enrich the cadet experience with integrated outcomes-based programs and enhances centers of excellence in every division of the Academy.
Your investment in Riverside and our cadets inspires young men to reach their full potential. Together, we foster their success and help equip the next generation of husbands, fathers, and leaders.
