Thriving at Riverdale

Since its founding in 1907, Riverdale Country School has sought to equip its students with the knowledge and capacities to create positive change in our own community and beyond. As we look ahead, we aim to sustain our pedagogical focus on positive change and ensure that our future is one of possibility and realized aspirations. In order to achieve this vision, we seek support for several priorities organized around three areas of focus linked to our mission and to cultivating student and community thriving.


Experiential Learning 

Experiential Curriculum + Professional Development
Co-curricular Programming + Student Activities

Community Connections/Partnerships 

Endowed Financial Aid
Summer Programs

Environmental Sustainability

Facilities + Environmental Sustainability
Food Systems + Gardens

We would be happy to provide you with details about any of the above priorities and look forward to finding mutual areas of impact that will continue to move the school forward in interesting and meaningful ways.
