Thriving to Learn.

Riverdale is a Pre-K through grade 12 independent school in New York City committed to empowering lifelong learners by developing minds, building character, and creating community in order to change our world for the good.

Yet, Riverdale is more than a school. It is an experience comprised of our mindset, our people, our programs, and our campus with a deep commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. All of us develop our own intellectual agency within an ethical community that fosters open inquiry, builds character strengths, and creates lifelong learners.

Our Campus

We want to acknowledge that the Riverdale Country School campus is on the land of the Lenape People past and present. We honor with gratitude the land and the generations of people who have stewarded it and recognize their survivorship throughout time. We name this connection to combat Indigenous exclusion and erasure and to remind us of our shared responsibility to continue to learn to be better stewards of the land we inhabit.

Riverdale is an exciting learning hub where learners come to improve themselves and find their unique potential.
