Director's Welcome

As we celebrate seven decades of tradition at Riviera, we are reminded of the significant role that our school has played in our community and in the lives of the students, families, and faculty members that we have touched. We are proud to have contributed so greatly to our students, fostering academic excellence and instilling in them a sense of self-worth and independence. We have stood the test of time by remaining true to our mission and values and by striving for excellence in every area.

Our intimate environment and familial approach are hallmarks of the Riviera experience. The individual attention we give to each one of our students impacts them at every level and helps make Riviera their second home. Our school is a true community in which students and faculty gather each day to challenge themselves to reach new heights and to effect positive change in the world around them.

Our two campuses are uniquely planned and positioned to provide for all of our students from preschool through twelfth grade. Our graduates are attending the finest universities and colleges throughout the United States and beyond, and our alumni are continuing the Riviera commitment to promoting humanity, citizenship, and service.

We hope that the introduction to Riviera Schools provided in our website will encourage you to learn more about our school and the people, resources, experiences, and programs that make it such a special place. We invite those of you who are interested in becoming a part of the Riviera family to contact us and visit our school. We're sure that once you have experienced Riviera for yourself, you will want to call it home.
