WELCOME

TO

why Rivertree?

So,

BECAUSE

"They just need an opportunity. Research shows, and our school data exhibits, that when a trusting adult invests in a child's life everything else follows. Using relationships as a starting point, our students are learning to read above grade-level, be leaders on their sports' teams, and be Christ-followers who love others well."

 

 

- Ms. Emily Ryan

Principal

Rivertree Academy

BECAUSE

"Our nation has been trying for over 50 years to address the educational plight of poor and disadvantaged children.  While some progress has been made, these children remain woefully behind their more advantaged classmates on every measure of academic achievement and success."

 

- Dr. Vernard T. Gant

Director, Urban School Services, Association of Christian Schools International

 

BECAUSE

"Every one of our children has the potential to change the world."

 

-Dr. Randy Brown

Founder / Chairman

Rivertree Academy

 

CHILDREN THRIVE

on an education that engages the heart. A Christian education addresses the intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of children.

Rivertree graduates will be:

LIFELONG LEARNERS

who ask great questions and pursue answers with passion and perseverance.

 

CONFIDENT AND EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATORS

who can win most any argument but have the wisdom to know when not to, who are comfortable in conversation with the homeless and with billionaires.

 

HARD WORKERS

who get the job done, but who know when to rest. Skilled with their hands, our students will be able to prepare a meal from seed to table, fix a fence while quoting great literature, sew, build, paint, or play an instrument.

 

FOLLOWERS OF JESUS

who trust Him and choose to live in humble friendship with Him. They feel loved and valued by God, they love people, and they forgive as quickly as they can. 

 

MAGNANIMOUS LEADERS

who are consistently promoted to greater positions of authority and influence, which they use to empower others and to be pillars upon which their communities can build.

 

Reading Rich

Reading Rich

Reading is fundamental to academic success. At Rivertree Academy, we utilize multisensory, individualized curriculum to ensure a strong foundation in reading for all of our students. We provide a rich array of books of all kinds that bring the curriculum to life, making academic study real and relevant for our students.

Rivertree Fine Arts

Rivertree Fine Arts

Rivertree Academy’s curriculum includes regular exposure to and participation in vocal and instrumental music, visual arts, dance and theater art, and hand crafting. Many of our students are gifted in various facets of the arts, and by activating and stimulating their creative abilities, we are able to expand their capacity to learn in all academic disciplines and to appreciate the creative works of others. Students go on monthly enrichment outings.

Character Infused

Character Infused

As a Christian school, Rivertree Academy teaches children that the Bible is their guide for wisdom, truth, and for learning about the character of God and His love for all people. As our students hide God's Word in their hearts, they will grow in their understanding of how to love their neighbors as themselves and to become people of noble character.

Relational-Based

Relational-Based

Our relational-based philosophy is grounded in the word of God and seeks to provide children with rich experiences that allow them to engage in living ideas. We expose children to diverse literature, poetry, art, music, nature studies, and more, so that they can learn about all of God's creation. We teach all of our children habits for life so they can become adults who glorify God with their minds, bodies, and spirits.

-SEE US IN ACTION-

 

PARTNER

In order to keep Rivertree Academy affordable for urban families, the fair share tuition at Rivertree is based on a family’s ability to pay. With most of our families coming from low-income homes, more than 95% of the cost of education is covered by our Partners.

 

  Full Partner 

 A Full Partner at Rivertree Academy provides a full sponsorship for an individual student.  Full Partners contribute $10,000 annually.

 

Half Partner

A Half Partner supports the education of a student with an annual investment of $5,000. We encourage our Half Partners to find a friend to partner with them.

 

Partner Group

A Partner Group is a small group of individuals who together share the financial and time commitment of a Full Partner. This is a great option for a Bible study, small group, or group of friends.

PLEDGE

Monthly Donors to Rivertree Academy give vital support that allows us to purchase books, bibles, microscopes, classroom and art supplies, as well as offer enrichment outings to the ballet, museum, and symphony. Ten donors at $84 a month will sponsor one student at Rivertree Academy for the year. 

PARTICIPATE

Rivertree Academy needs people to help us form a hedge of protection and blessing around our students (Job 1:10). As a volunteer with Rivertree Academy, you will be Helping, Encouraging, Discipling, Growing, and Educating (HEDGE) our students.  

We will do our best to match you with opportunities and students that fit your knowledge, skills, interests, and availability. 

PRAY

At Rivertree Academy, we believe that the prayers offered in faith by our prayer warriors are absolutely essential to the fulfillment of our mission and vision. We are grateful to God that He continues to raise up men, women, and children to pray for our school, and we continuously marvel at the way He is providing for us and answering prayer.

Can we count you in?
