RHA Graphic

At River Heights Academy (RHA) we build joyful classrooms, develop a sense of belonging, and provide growth opportunities for our students and staff alike. River Heights is an amazing place to learn and grow. We pride ourselves on being an innovative and collaborative organization, with a focus on student-centered learning, social-emotional development, and teacher voice. 

We support each child in becoming an engaged and curious learner, a confident self-advocate, and a creative problem-solver by setting high expectations and nurturing a positive culture that honors diversity, collaboration, and optimism. 

Our model helps our students grow as learners and as individuals. Small class sizes coupled with a focus on building deep, meaningful relationships, results in a very Distinctive culture. We prioritize mental health and wellness to provide a unique and supportive learning space for all. 

River Heights Academy provides access and opportunity for all students. We are tuition free, provide free breakfast and lunch, offer 1:1 technology for every student and incredible programming all year round. 

RHA  is a Distinctive Schools campus. As an organization, Distinctive Schools manages five campuses in Chicago and four campuses in Detroit, Michigan. Choosing a Distinctive campus means choosing a strong network of leaders and educators with decades of experience. Learn about our network and all campuses at distinctiveschools.org.
