Campaign Priorities

Riverdale is at its heart experiential and interdisciplinary. In every classroom, and in all our co-curricular activities, we help students understand how their learning and development is connected to the world, their lives, and the work of others. It’s an ambitious and powerful approach – and it takes more time, more of the very best teachers, more resources, and more of a commitment from all of us – including those who can help Riverdale realize its vision through philanthropy.  

Inspirational facilities
Build an environment that can make Riverdale a hub of interdisciplinary activity and a center of 21st-century learning. 

Pioneering programs & transformative co-curriculum
Make Riverdale a model of academic excellence, with a focus on math, science, and interdisciplinary courses, incorporating innovative teaching technology. Create a co-curriculum that is deeply experiential and that develops academic and character learning in every Riverdale student.
Pre-eminent faculty
Encourage professional development, independent thinking, as well as entrepreneurial and creative ideas among our faculty.
Guaranteed student diversity
Increase financial aid endowment with a particular focus on moderating tuition for middle-class families.
