Directors' Welcome

As we celebrate more than six 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, promoting 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 facet of our institution.

For years, we worked diligently to expand into the high school grade levels, and in the fall of 2011, we were able to celebrate our 60th anniversary by unveiling a new state-of-the-art Preparatory School campus to serve students in grades six through twelve. The Prep School campus features approximately 110,000 square feet of facilities on almost fourteen acres and provides a unique and stimulating environment unparalleled in the area. All of our students in preschool through twelfth grade benefit from the true commitment and dedication we have provided to our students since 1950, as we continue to meet the challenges of the 21st century while maintaining our strong record of educational achievement.

We hope that the introduction to Riviera Schools provided in our website will encourage you to learn more about our school and its remarkable resources. 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 also want to call it home.
