A Message from the Admissions Director

Welcome to your Web-side view of The Rivers School. I encourage you to navigate our site to learn more about our community, including athletics, arts and co-curricular programs. Be sure to read about our Rivers Conservatory Program. I also encourage you to take our campus tour.
At Rivers, you will discover a dedicated, enthusiastic and professional faculty who will both challenge you to stretch your limits as well as strengthen your existing talents and interests. You will find a community that inspires students to excel in academics, the arts, athletics and extra-curriculars, while also enjoying a fulfilling and happy secondary school experience. In addition, our highly respected and devoted college counselors work closely and individually with students throughout the college selection process, resulting in excellent college choices for our graduates.

You will also find a beautiful campus with outstanding facilities situated in a bucolic setting on the shores of Nonesuch Pond. Finally, if you decide to attend Rivers, you will establish lifelong friendships — with students and faculty — and will develop a thirst for lifelong learning. At the core of all of our programs is a strong belief in challenge, creativity and caring.
