Max and Ruth Cohen Financial Aid Program

Our financial aid program is available to students in grades six through twelve. Riviera is sensitive to the financial commitment families undertake to send their children to our school. Even though the family bears the primary obligation of the cost of a child's education, Riviera allocates significant funds each year to provide financial assistance to deserving students with financial need. In turn, the school community benefits by attracting talented students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend Riviera.

To objectively assess a family's ability to contribute to a child's educational expenses, Riviera uses SmartAid as an objective third party. Our Financial Aid Committee awards tuition assistance based on SmartAid's recommended level and the availability of funds.

Please access the SmartAid web site by clicking on the icon below. Once there, click on the Create Account button in the New User section to begin your application. You will need to submit your Federal Income Tax Returns directly to SmartAid. There is a fee of $35 to process the application. Once completed, your application will be available immediately to Riviera's Financial Aid Committee for review.
