Third grade students raise their hands in class.
The Annual Fund depends on the participation of the Riverdale community.

Financial Aid

Scholarship support allows all qualified applicants to attend Riverdale regardless of their ability to pay full tuition and ensures that a variety of perspectives inform the inquiring minds of our entire community. Nearly 20% of our students receive financial aid.

Qualified &
Dedicated Faculty

Riverdale’s educators are given the resources necessary to implement cutting-edge teaching methods and are strongly encouraged to pursue professional development opportunities.

Thoughtful &

At Riverdale, we have expanded the breadth and depth of both our curriculum and co-curriculum in order to cultivate individualized experiences for each student. Young people are given the freedom to develop projects and discover passions that enhance their academic experiences while preparing them for life after graduation.

I give to the Annual Fund because it supports Riverdale’s financial aid program. I hope my gift will allow other children from humble means to enjoy the benefits of a community that values them and helps them realize their potential.
