About Riverside Military Academy
Riverside Military Academy, established in 1907, is one of the nation's premier all-boys college preparatory schools. Our distinctive military structure, academic and athletic programs, and leadership development enhance the overall educational experience of young men in grades 7-12.
Studies have shown that the boarding school experience can be a social and emotional bridge to developing a sense of independence in young people. Boarding school students tend to be more engaged, hard-working, independent, confident, and prepared to face new challenges.
Our Academy welcomes young men who benefit from structure and challenge as well as above-average students who are striving to gain admission to prestigious colleges and universities around the world.
Successful students at Riverside:
- Work and study to meet the academic challenges given to them.
- Become involved in positive activities, such as athletics, clubs or artistic opportunities that help them explore their talents and hone their skills.
- Hold themselves and others to high standards of conduct while adhering to the RMA Honor Code.
The purpose of Riverside Military Academy is to develop virtuous and competent young men who are prepared for success in college and positions of responsibility thereafter. Our academic programs and military structure combine to produce young men of character, sound judgment, and commitment.
Although RMA is an Army JROTC affiliated school, our students are not required to enter military service following graduation.
