The Best in Boys' Education

Welcome from the Director of Admissions

Greetings from Riverside Military Academy
Riverside Military Academy entered the uncertainty of this pandemic arm-in-arm with our families, sharing the risks and working to find solutions. The spring semester was completed via a robust synchronous learning platform with many parents complimenting RMA’s quick and successful turnaround to digital learning. We were one of the first and only schools to offer refunds to parents on auxiliary services once cadets returned home. Now, we are moving forward to open our campus to you for tours, open houses, and in person Fall enrollment. Your family’s safety and health along with that of the RMA faculty and staff is our highest priority, therefore, all forward plans are in keeping with government and CDC guidelines. We know there are yet many questions to answer, but we want to move forward with you.
Providing an Individualized Learning Experience

For over a century, Riverside Military Academy has been the preeminent college preparatory, military academy in the nation. While others have faded away, changed their name, or softened their approach, RMA has thrived. We 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.

Looking for Something More

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” we 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. 

A School That Supports Your Son’s Success

Riverside Military Academy is unique from other military schools in that it teaches students the personal values of honor, patriotism, and selflessness not only through the discipline and structure of a traditional military school environment but also through every facet of cadet life

From world-class facilities, exceptional faculty, highly qualified staff, and superior governance, RMA is about excellence. We welcome the opportunity to show you.
