Riverside Academy was established in 1970 to fulfill the educational needs of students in the parishes of St. Charles, St. James, and St. John the Baptist. It is a school comprised of grades pre-K 3 years old through 12th grade.
The faculty at Riverside Academy realizes that the school must meet the needs of all students whether they plan to attend college, vocational technical school, or enter the work force immediately. The Riverside Academy curriculum is diverse in its nature to meet the needs of each of our students. The curriculum offers a solid foundation for those students desiring to attend a two or four-year college, as well as those desiring to pursue a trade or attend a technical college.
The flexibility of the curriculum enables our students to exercise the freedom of choice while encouraging critical thinking and decision-making skills as they grow and mature into young adults who will contribute positively to society.
