“Riverside Military Academy was instrumental in my adolescent formation and helped to further enhance my God-given gifts of dedication, tenacity, and perseverance. Riverside shaped my character and integrity, motivated me to strive for excellence, and empowered me to become a critical thinker in the world. Over the decades, Riverside has been blessed with excellent military training, quality teachers and educators, and outstanding staff and administration, and today is no exception. Should you be discerning a private, boarding school, and quality education, like I did over 30-years ago with my parents, then Riverside is the place for you: state-of-the art facilities, great character and ethical formation, high standards in education, quality military instruction, and developing and sustaining friendships that last a lifetime. Riverside still remains one of the greatest chapters in my life—four great years—but it does not end at graduation, you are part of a fraternity that lasts a lifetime.”
