Riverside Military Academy, est. 1907 in Gainesville, GA, is a premier college preparatory boarding school following a military structure. We help young men reach their true potential!

Riverside is a boys only private school serving boarding and day cadets in grades 7-12. The Academy's distinctive educational environment provides young men with the motivation, confidence, and skills to succeed with each new challenge. Cadets take full advantage of Riverside's first-class athletic facilities, fine arts programs, and all the benefits of our beautiful 206 acre campus on the shores of Lake Lanier.
Our diverse Corps of Cadets consists of more than 500 young men from 27 countries. Each year, our graduating class earns millions of dollars in collegiate scholarships to prestigious universities around the world!

Riverside's Mission

Riverside's vision is to be the gold standard for military college preparatory school education in America. Our mission is to prepare ethical young men of character for success through the provision of a rigorous academic program, leadership development, competitive athletics, extensive co-curricular activities, and the structure of a military model of education.
During these critical formative years when a young man's character, confidence, and work ethic are forever shaped, we provide the foundation needed to help him flourish. Cadets grow from impressionable boys into mature, confident leaders. The military structure enhances our overall educational experience by teaching personal and organizational responsibility, time management, and the value of collaboration. Review Riverside Military Academy's complete Mission Statement.

Participation in a JROTC program does not require military service in college or beyond. However, students who are interested in military careers have been able to use their experience at Riverside to successfully obtain ROTC college scholarships as well as gaining acceptance to the highly competitive Military Service Academies.
