Welcome from the Headmaster
Welcome to our website and the virtual world of Rivermont Collegiate! It is an honor to lead a school with a 130 year tradition of academic excellence. The Irish poet William Butler Yeats, I believe, captured the essence of education when he penned that “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
Rivermont embraces this belief. Here students are part of a community where Intellect, Character, and Creativity are relevant and valued. Our dedicated faculty are more than teachers, they are guides, mentors, and role models to our students. Rivermont’s curriculum is rigorous, yet founded on the principle of a well-rounded education balanced by participation in the arts, athletics, and service.
Education as a lifelong passion calls upon us to continually reach and expand our horizons. The complexity of our ever-changing world requires an education that prepares students to confidently face challenges with a solid foundation of academic knowledge, strength of character, and creativity to pursue innovative solutions. You will find this education here at Rivermont.
If you aren't already familiar with Rivermont, I strongly encourage a personal visit to campus. Our website, no matter how thorough, cannot adequately convey the palpable energy, passion, and enthuasiasm for learning that is present at Rivermont. We look forward to meeting you.
