Programs for the “Whole Child”
Riverview School offers programs for students with complex language, learning and cognitive challenges. The Middle/High School serves adolescents ages 12-18, and the Getting Ready for the Outside World (GROW) Transition Program serves young adults ages 18-22. We also offer a 5-week Summer Program for students in both age groups.

Riverview’s “whole child” philosophy guides the ongoing dialogue between academic and residential faculty and ensures that student needs are addressed comprehensively.

Our success-oriented, non-competitive and individualized academic program helps to increase self-awareness, student confidence and willingness to take risks in the learning environment.

In the structured supportive setting, our professional, caring academic and residential faculty foster independence and self-determination through the development of independent living skills, social skills and self-esteem.
