We offer a traditional, American-style education where personal values, honor, and love of country still matter. Riverside is not owned or operated by any particular religious denomination, but supports the spiritual and educational goals of all families.

Cadets of Riverside Military Academy attend grades 7 through 12 and benefit from a small class size and a 14:1 student teacher ratio. Our entire educational program centers around the way young men learn best. The 2012-13 Corps of Cadets consists of 420 cadets from 22 countries.

Riverside's College Center assists cadets in preparing for and placing their college applications each year. The graduating class 2012 consisted of 83 cadets who received over $2 million in scholarships and were admitted to over 90 universities including the U.S. Military Academy –West Point and the United States Naval Academy.

Upon graduation, a Riverside cadet has experienced the challenges of the military model of education and is completely prepared for the rigors of college. He is poised, polite, and confident in any social environment. Riverside cadets stand tall, offer a firm handshake, respect authority, and display a level of confidence that parents may not have observed previously.
