Riverside Military Academy

2001 Riverside Dr, Gainesville, GA 30501

RMA offers a structured program for college-bound young men that emphasizes problem-solving and critical-thinking skills and features Advanced Placement and honors courses. Small classes, evening tutorial opportunities and weekly grade reports are programmatic elements designed to increase the student's likelihood for success. Instructors teach organizational and time-management skills, and cadets also learn how to take notes and study in a manner that accounts for their styles of processing information. All boys in grades 9-12 take part in Riverside's Junior ROTC program, which focuses upon citizenship, leadership and responsibility. Athletics are an integral aspect of school life. Each cadet spends two hours per day engaging in a sport at the varsity, junior varsity or intramural level; certain options are also available as seventh and eighth grade prep sports.
