The Best in Boys' Education


An All-Boys School That Transforms Young Men into Future Leaders

The education at Riverside Military Academy is comprehensive. It extends beyond the classroom and confines of campus, and helps students develop useful skills they’ll use throughout the rest of their life. The program of studies encompasses a rigorous curriculum, character development, leadership opportunities, athletic competition, extracurricular activities and social interaction with a diverse group of peers.
RMA has created an in-person, on-campus learning environment during the pandemic focused on the physical health and academic well being of all students.  A robust, synchronous digital learning platform can be activated, if health and safety circumstances dictate. Read about RMA's response to COVID-19 and how the Academy has focused on the safety, stability, and security of its students.

Providing an Individualized Learning Experience

Riverside Military Academy is a boys school with an 8:1 student to teacher ratio that allows for small classes with dedicated faculty that provide students with an individualized learning experience. We select our esteemed teachers not only for their impressive professional credentials, but also for their dedication to our mission: preparing ethical young men of character for success in college and in life by developing the whole person.

Character Development is Key

As a boys high school, Riverside Military Academy is dedicated to teaching core values that stress the importance of good citizenship, well-rounded personal growth, and social responsibility in order to develop virtuous young men. Character development is one of our four central pillars, and is taught and embodied by all faculty members. Important character and ethical lessons are a major component of standard academic curriculum at Riverside Military Academy, and help mold students into engaged, educated citizens.
