From Rivermont Collegiate

Rivermont Collegiate serves high-achieving, academically driven students from 2-years-old through 12th grade, and prepares them for success in college and career. The experience of a Rivermont Collegiate education is fundamentally unique. Using our crib to college approach, we are able to work with students through their entire development arc. This allows us to watch them grow, get to know them on a deeper level, and guide them towards their highest potential.

Our commitment to students extends far beyond the classroom. We hold that greatness emerges not from classroom rigor alone, but a symphony of intellectual, cultural, and physical inspirations. We are proud that our distinctive multicultural community develops global citizens ready to meet tomorrow’s challenges.

Rivermont Collegiate is a private, nonsectarian, independent, multicultural day school with 5 and 7-day 8th through 12th-grade boarding. We are the #1 ranked school in Iowa on the 2019 Iowa Advanced Placement Index.
