Welcome to River Heights Academy!

River Heights Academy is committed to providing the highest quality education possible. At River Heights Academy (RHA), we strive to understand your child’s needs, aspirations, and goals. Our teachers create safe and joyful learning environments that support a wide range of personalities and experiences. We focus on building relationships with our students to provide personalized education, and to provide our learners with a challenging curriculum, 1:1 technology, and the social-emotional support that they need to thrive in a changing world



At River Heights Academy, our innovative approach focuses on strong relationship-building, student-well being and joy, and challenging curriculum to ensure student success. We personalize learning to meet the unique needs of each student, and all students receive an ipad or chromebook to elevate their learning. RHA students are engaged and curious learners – they excel academically and build deeper self awareness in our joyful culture of safety and support.
