About Riverside Military Academy
Riverside Military Academy, established in 1907, is one of the nation's premier all-boys college preparatory schools. As we prepare young men in grades 7-12 for success in college and in life, our distinctive military structure enhances the educational experience here by teaching them skills that help them excel individually and as a group. Our comprehensive program of academics, athletics, and leadership development sets the stage for a lifetime of success.
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.
Riverside is designed to meet the unique educational and developmental needs of boys, and everything we do is geared to help them succeed.
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.
