Academics frame the core of the RBS experience. Core classes include English, Math, Social Studies, Physical Education, Bible, and Fine Arts. As your student progresses from grade to grade, electives and extracurricular programs are made available to enhance their educational experience and help them grow and mature both cognitively and physically.
For over five years, RBS has excelled in a 1:1 Apple technology program designed to place technology in the hand of each student. Starting in Elementary and Middle School, students are equipped with Apple iPad Airs. High School students receive an Apple MacBook Air. Students are taught how to care for the devices and how to access their cloud resources. Charging and daily maintenance are part of the student experience, while trained staff provides tech support as needed. The RBS campus is equipped with State-of-the-Art WiFi coverage to facilitate the operation and use of the devices on-campus and employs a mobile device management software suite to ensure student safety both on and off campus.

The elementary years often shape a child’s love for learning. At Riverdale Baptist Elementary School our faculty and staff create and nurture a safe and secure environment that is designed to celebrate each child’s unique God-given gifts. We strive to meet the needs of each student by engaging them through self-discovery and higher-order thinking skills through visual, kinesthetic, auditory, and tactile experiences.
The middle school years are an incredibly exciting time in a young person’s life. As our students progress, they reach various milestones while developing a better understanding of their strengths, dreams, and goals. At Riverdale Baptist Middle School our faculty and staff create and nurture a safe and secure environment that is designed to celebrate each child’s unique God-given gifts. We strive to meet the needs of each student by providing opportunities for our students to develop as visionaries and leaders, rooted in the Word of God.
Here at Riverdale Baptist (RBS), Christ is the center of all things, and the Word of God is the foundation for every subject. 2 Timothy 3:14-15 states, “But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” We, therefore, are committed to a worldview based on the principles in the Word of God. Our mission is to fully engage each student holistically in this Christ-centered, biblically integrated environment. Moreover, we are proud to say that RBS reflects the broad spectrum of educational opportunities that support individual student needs spiritually, academically, athletically, and socially.
RBS offers after-school and summer enrichment programs designed to foster year-round learning for all grades. Elementary, Middle, and High School all participate in Summer Reading and have options for Summer Math.
