Riverside Academy is built upon the triple foundation of – scholarship, Christian character development, and education through dedication.
Our mission is to develop each individual student into becoming a lifelong learner, to support students as they mature into responsible and moral individuals, and to dedicate ourselves to maintaining the highest academic standards in a family-oriented environment.
Responsible for myself
Expect the best of me
Be prepared at all times
Examine myself closely
Learn as much as I can
We are the only combination school -Pre- School (2, 3 and 4-year olds) through 12th grade, in the River Parishes. The school site covers 20 acres and consists of eleven permanent buildings.
Our child moved from another school this year and has excelled at RA. She has had so many more opportunities, including participating in band. She was welcomed by classmates, teachers, and even other parents from day one. If you are looking for a good school that educates the whole child, RA is worthy. I have spoken to many other new parents who have told me how happy their child is at RA.
I have had four children attend Riverside since the very first day they opened their doors. I attended more sporting events than I can count. Two of my grandkids graduated from here, and two more are there now. The last child just turned eight years-old, which means I still have a few more years for spending time with my Riverside Family.
This school has provided me so many different opportunities over the past ten years. I’ve met many different friends, a few I think I will have for the rest of my life and also a plethora of experiences. Some experiences are participating in the annual Carnival Ball, playing different sports and being a part of many clubs. This school is unique because of its ability to bring people together and prepare its students for next step in life. I definitely wouldn’t choose a different school because all of my friends and teachers have given me so much to be thankful for that I will remember for the rest of my life.
