Welcome from the Interim Headmaster
Welcome to Rivermont Collegiate! When I first stepped on campus in 2000, I thought to myself, “Now, this is a place where I would want to send my children to school.” The campus, the faculty, the students, the entire aura of the school spoke to me of academic excellence. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to be involved with the school in many capacities, including parent, coach, teacher, and administrator. From the moment of that initial sensation until now, I consistently witness how Rivermont is a place that values a high quality education.
The pillars of Intellect, Character, and Creativity support the decisions that are made for how best to serve the needs of our students. I am amazed how members of the faculty know each student as a person - his hobbies, her favorite color, his pet’s name – beyond knowing the student as someone behind a desk. Teachers are invested in the well-being of each child, and Rivermont’s balanced approach includes a rigorous curriculum accompanied with participation in the arts, athletics, and service.
At the time of my first exposure to Rivermont, my son was only a few months old. He now has two more siblings, and every one of them has attended Rivemont from the time they were three years old. I am confident that when they receive their diplomas they will be prepared for the college experience. But perhaps more importantly, they will be prepared for life. The education provided at Rivermont fosters a desire to be a lifelong learner. Due to the rapid pace of change occurring in our world, we cannot equip them to know everything, but we can lead them to develop a passion for learning.
So, I invite you to explore our website, and learn more about this exceptional institution. I also encourage you to visit our campus in person, so that you, too, can participate in the Rivermont experience!
