Riverside Academy

Grades: PK - 12 | 798 students
Riverside Academy caters to the educational needs of students in the parishes of St. Charles, St. James, and St. John the Baptist.
Our school serves grades Pre-K 3 year old through 12th grade.
We believe that all students, faculty, parents, and RA community contribute not only to our school but also to the surrounding community, through life-long learning.
Riverside is not only an academic institution but also a place where the "whole" student is educated.
Character education is an important part of supporting children and helping to develop hard-working, well-educated, productive citizens for our society.
We recognize student differences and do not believe education must be the same for all students.
