Public Relations & Media Requests
Riverside Military Academy's Corps of Cadets represents over 530 students from 27 countries. The Public Relations Office serves as the primary contact for all media activity at Riverside. We have the concerns of our children in mind and are required by law to protect minor confidentiality in name and image. Therefore, we ask that media representatives who visit our facility:
- Schedule the visit ahead of time through the Public Relations Office.
- Sign in at the Admissions Office, located in the main entrance of Lanier Hall, where you will be met by an Academy representative.
- Remain with the Academy representative as assigned while on the campus grounds.
- Do not speak with or photograph cadets without approval and presence of an Academy representative.
Media representatives who would like more information about Riverside's programs and special events, an interview with a member of our faculty or staff, or photography or logo files should please contact our Public Relations Office.
