On behalf of the Admissions team at Riverside Military Academy, please accept my warm greetings and welcome. For over a century, Riverside has been the preeminent college preparatory, military academy in the nation. While others have faded away, changed their name, or softened their approach, Riverside has thrived. I believe it is because we know who we are, what we do, and who we serve. As an independent, all-boys, military boarding school, we are about as niche as you get! We embrace those four things and seek to deliver the best educational experience for our cadets in partnership with our wonderful parent and alumni communities.

If you are looking at this page, you are probably looking for something different. You are likely looking for more than what you are finding in local public or private day schools. If you are like most families we speak with, you are probably looking for more structure, more opportunity, more diversity, more sports, more fine arts, more leadership development, more focus, more challenge, or more academic support to name a few of the most common  “mores” I hear. Whether your son is a high potential, underachiever or a high performing student who desires more rigor in and outside of the classroom, you can find it here.  From world-class facilities, exceptional faculty, highly qualified staff, and superior governance, Riverside is about excellence. We welcome the opportunity to show you.

I encourage you to talk to one of our amazing admissions counselors. I assure you that you will find our staff to be very informed, responsive, patient, and supportive. They understand the significance of this kind of decision and have helped countless parents negotiate the process.  I also highly encourage you to come to visit our campus. There really is no substitute for seeing the campus, meeting our people, and watching Riverside in action. It is often the best way to determine if Riverside is a good fit for your family.  

As always, I am available to help at any time. Feel free to reach out to me if I can be of any service to you.

For the Corps,

Ben Allen
