Riverside Military Academy's Summer L.E.A.D. Academy for rising 7th to 12th graders provides students a great mix between a summer academic program and a high adventure summer camp, all within the context of Riverside’s famed military model of education. Summer is a great time to "test the waters" at Riverside!
In general, the mornings are centered on the academic component of the program, while the entire afternoon is dedicated to athletics and adventures. The evenings are dedicated to character studies, study skill enhancement, and academic preparation for the next day. The specific curriculum a student participates in largely depends on the grade level they will be entering in the Fall and whether the student is seeking to replace or advance by an academic credit. During the weekends, the students go on trips that take advantage of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and the excitement of Atlanta.
Academic offerings include:
Credit Classes- Designed for rising 10th -12th graders. Either one full credit or two half credits can be earned. Best for credit recovery.
High School Bound- Preparation for rising 9th graders to take on the rigors of high school life.
Middle School Foundations- For rising 7th and 8th graders. Covering all fundamentals of core subjects to prepare for the next grade.
College Readiness Bootcamp- Designed for rising 11th and 12th graders. Our 4-week college readiness boot camp is designed to prepare students for the rigors of the college selection and application processes and the unique challenges of college life.
English Learners Program- Whether a beginner-level English learner or more advanced, our English learning program is designed to provide level-appropriate English language instruction in reading, writing, and speaking. This program also includes opportunities for cultural excursions.

My son attended this school for the S.O.A.R. program this past summer. From the summer program alone I have seen a huge difference in his attitude, his willingness to learn and how enthusiastic he seems to reach his potential goals. He is a freshman now and with Gods will, he will be a senior in four years and take the opportunities that he has been blessed with at this school...his words this past weekend to me, "Thanks for sending me here, mom. This is the school for me!”
Riverside Military Academy is the school that most parents wished was in their hometown for their son. Our local schools were failing and the classrooms were not conducive to learning. My son was falling further behind and I could not seem to reach him. So I considered Riverside for summer school. This was best decision we made for him. I wish I could broadcast it on every television or radio station and all social media. Riverside = Great environment, exceptional teachers, excellent curriculum. Structured, but allows the cadets the freedom to be creative and ingenious. Parents are always keep updated on school and students status. No bullying, hazing, or intimidation. I knew my son was smart and could be a honor student--Riverside brought it to manifestation. Each time I see him I am more amazed at how well he has developed into a productive, caring and respectful young man. If you are looking for a better education for your son, combined with a behavior change in his life and is willing to invest in your son's future--you should invest in Riverside. You will not be disappointed.
My school provided the structure that my son needs to succeed. The team sports, physical activity opportunities, homework help, and mandatory study time are wonderful. I hope that he will be able to graduate from RMA.
Riverside Military Academy is in my opinion one of the BEST Schools available today. They have an excellent curriculum and they teach tradition, elegance, good manners, excellence, via leading by example. What better way to teach children. With a 106 year history they must be doing something right!!!
