Letter from the Dean

Riverside Military Academy is an amazing place. From rigorous daily schedules to enriching academics, your son finds challenges at every corner of our campus. Faculty and TAC Officers inspire and guide young men through this arduous process. Cadets begin to discover and develop talents and abilities that are essential to a young man in his teenage years. Our cadets not only learn the academic subjects of the classroom, but also ethical decision making and practical leadership. It is not easy; nothing meaningful is ever easy. Success takes self-discipline, dedication, and effort. Riverside Military provides this unique environment that teaches boys these essential skills. Here at Riverside Military Academy, cadets find out that they are capable of achieving so much more than they ever thought possible.

Our experienced faculty dedicate themselves to the education of our cadets. Teachers at Riverside Military Academy are lifelong learners. We want to constantly improve the quality of our instruction to keep the subject matter relevant for our cadets, preparing them for the demands of an ever-changing world. It is an honor for us to be your son's school. I truly believe that we develop future leaders in all areas.
