Read our Mission Statement.
Studies have shown that the boarding school experience can be a social and emotional bridge to developing a sense of independence in young people. Boarding school students tend to be more engaged, hard-working, independent, confident, and prepared to face new challenges.
Our Academy welcomes young men who benefit from structure and challenge as well as above-average students who are striving to gain admission to prestigious colleges and universities around the world.
Although RMA is an Army JROTC affiliated school, our students are not required to enter military service following graduation. However, Riverside Cadets choosing to pursue nominations and appointments to the U.S. Service Academies benefit from our JROTC training as well as our dedicated Service Academy Prep Program.
Riverside Military Academy is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and all gifts are tax deductible. Every gift to the Academy helps fulfill our mission of preparing ethical young men of character for success in college and in life.
