Director's Welcome


Welcome to Riviera Schools!

In 1950, Riviera Day School was founded upon the premise that scholars are capable of rigorous learning and remarkable growth when immersed in an environment that challenges, supports and inspires them. Over the past 73 years Riviera educators have held steadfast to the mission of developing graduates who are committed to personal success, integrity, and service to others.

While honoring our rich history and tradition, Riviera has also evolved in remarkable ways. The school’s footprint extends across two beautiful campuses that serve students in grades PK3 – 12. Our academic program boasts robust and differentiated learning opportunities for students, and athletic and extracurricular offerings ensure that each child has access to spaces to explore and grow their interests. Our facilities, resources, and small class sizes provide the ideal setting for students to truly thrive in their academic, social, and athletic pursuits.

Our graduates embody the spirit of Riviera’s pursuit of excellence as they attend top colleges and universities across the country and transform their industries. They are driven to succeed, grounded in their principles, and compelled to shape and create a better future. 

Riviera’s commitment to excellence is built upon a foundation of personalized, caring, and committed relationships. Our culture of community is palpable on campus, and it is this family atmosphere that makes Riviera such a special place for our staff, students, parents, and graduates.

We invite you to come visit us at our Riviera Day School and Riviera Prep School campuses and experience firsthand the Riviera difference.

In partnership,
