our mission

Our Mission

Our school is committed to the growth and positive development of students through an experiential learning approach that strives to engage the student, enlighten the mind and empower the future.

Our mission is to empower every student to be a successful learner. We want our students to be the “Best” without reservation or qualified restrictions. We seek to promote a diverse, challenging and supportive environment of firmly grounded, tolerant, respectful, accountable and academically motivated students.


Fully Accredited WASC School

WASC stands for the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It is the accrediting body for the western states, including California. Their job is to visit schools and determine whether or not the school is doing an adequate job educating All students as well as whether the school meets its own definition of who it claims to be. The WASC process includes a self-study to identify who we are, what we are doing, and how we are doing it.

Becoming WASC accredited means that credits, grades, and courses taken at Riverside Prep will be transferable to other high schools and will be looked at by colleges as a fully accredited and reputable high school. Many colleges and universities will not accept students from non-accredited schools, or if they do, often students are held to higher test score requirements. Our interest is giving the students at our school the best education possible as well as enabling them to pursue whatever course they choose in the future.

Enrollment Availability

Riverside Preparatory School has a limited number of spaces available for students.  A lottery is conducted to determine the order in which an invitation to attend will be extended when spaces are available which are less than the number of students on the waiting list for any given grade level.  Kindergarten students for each year are accepted on a “first come” basis until classes are full.  The School encourages parents to register for Kindergarten as early as possible.  Some parents are registering their children for kindergarten as early as five years in advance!
