Letter from the Principal
Welcome to Riviera Hall! Founded in 1952, we aim to provide students with the academic, social, and spiritual experiences that will shape them into responsible global citizens.
The rigorous academic program allows students to stretch their thinking and leads the way for life-long learning. In addition to core subjects, our dynamic program includes art, gardening, Experium science courses, music, outdoor education and international field trips, honors classes and sports for middle school students, outreach programs and responsible use of technology.
Our talented and dedicated faculty are committed to forming positive relationships with our students and parents. As a community of faith, we believe that providing our youth with a well-rounded education is necessary to developing their hearts and their minds.
The best way to experience the uniqueness of Riviera Hall is to visit our campus. Please make an appointment to spend some time at our School by the Sea!
