From Riverdale Country School

Founded in 1907 and consistently recognized as a global leader in independent education, Riverdale's mission is to empower lifelong learners by developing minds, building character, and creating community in order to change our world for the good.

Often described as high challenge/high support, we create a culture of great critical thinking, academic excellence, curiosity, open discourse, and innovation. The Riverdale Learning Experience is designed to inspire students through a rich curriculum that includes interdisciplinary learning, research, travel and experiential education, athletics, clubs, and activities.

We seek to reflect the diversity of the New York City metropolitan area in our students, faculty, and staff. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) is the foundational core of the anti-racist, anti-bias, and transformational work that Riverdale is doing to help our school community members feel seen, heard, and valued.

We welcome students of all identities.
