Partners in Education

Your support means the world to everyone at Riverside Christian School!

The students, staff and board of Riverside want to thank you for consideration of partnering with us to meet the mission of the school: 

Riverside Christian School exists to provide a Bible-based education, centered on Christ, equipping students for a lifetime of learning, leadership, service, and worship.


While our families pay tuition, tuition alone comes short of covering the cost of educating a student at Riverside.  We use fundraisers and accept donations to help fill that “gap” between cost and expenses, seeking to lessen the burden on our families while maintaining excellence in all we do. 

Riverside Christian School is a non-profit, with a 501(C)(3), that is audited yearly.  Maintaining the integrity of gifts given to the school is of utmost importance to us and spending decisions are prayerfully made.    

Direct your giving to a specific need:

Our general fund helps with building expenses, utilities, maintenance. Providing field trips, curriculum and after school program items. The general fund monies can be distributed to the place of greatest need.

Each year at the Pancake Feed we designate a specific item for which we are raising money. These items will enhance the children’s learning experience at Riverside Christian School. This year we are raising money for sound field amplification systems to be put in each of our classrooms. 

Amplifications systems help everyone in a room hear the speaker with clarity, not just volume.

Riverside’s PreK – 12th grade education provides each student with the opportunity to develop a strong work ethic and a deep sense of love and respect for others. Our staff models servant leadership and is committed to teaching and equipping tomorrow’s Christian leaders. As we celebrate our 37th year of education in the Grand Cities, we are so thankful for the generosity of your giving heart!

After many years of prayer, seeking, and direction, Riverside Christian School will be adding a High School in the fall of 2020. It will be a trans-formative school, unlike any in our region. This next generation school enables students in 9-12th grade choose their path and have their education tailored to them. Riverside Christian High School will offer over 200 courses and electives, classes that involve our community and prepare your children for a successful launch into adult life.
