At Riverside Academy, your child will be nourished, taught, and loved every day. Since opening our doors in 1999, we have offered a rigorous, student-centered program facilitated by highly effective teachers and supported by progressive technology. We offer intensive support, and a safe, caring, and inclusive environment. We offer an A-rated academic program (2016 and 2017, Overall Value Added), and provide a safe and secure learning environment. Come see our school in action!
Community schools offer an alternative to the local public school. They are free and open to all students and focused on meeting student needs for success. Community schools are among the top-performing schools in the nation.
Our educational approach has five principles at its core. These principles provide a strong foundation for learning.
Individualized LearningWe care about every student and are committed to preparing children for lifelong success. Our Individualized Learning Plans start with a unique baseline for each student and analyze performance data at regular, short intervals. Teachers and staff tailor lessons and provide support accordingly.
Academic ExcellenceAs part of the ACCEL Schools network, we strategically apply best practices to our curriculum design, teacher training, and integrated technology to drive continuous gains in academic performance.
Accessible to AllWe foster a culture that is reflective of local values and interests, and we are open to the needs of all students.
Community PartnershipWe are not just located in your community — we are a part of it. We partner with local community and government leaders.
Safe and CaringWe care about the well-being and development of each child. We insist on a secure and orderly school. We address every aspect of security, from building codes and safety procedures to codes of conduct and character education.
Our small class size and dedication to a well-rounded education make Riverside Academy a great educational environment.
Our school is part of ACCEL Schools, an established network of more than 40 charter and community schools located throughout the U.S. We serve more than 11,500 students nationwide.
