Driving Directions to Riverside Military Academy
Our spectacular 206-acre campus sits on the shores of Lake Sydney Lanier and is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in beautiful northeast Georgia. The campus is located in Gainesville, GA, a suburban community just 60 minutes north of Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. Riverside is easily accessible to students and their families from around the world. A City of Excellence, Gainesville is the economic hub of northeast Georgia and is home to over 25,000 citizens.
Over the past 10 years Downtown Gainesville has undergone an amazing transformation. The heritage of its past has been preserved through historically accurate building restorations.

You're invited to visit, shop, dine, and enjoy the heart of our community!
