Dedicated faculty, actively engaged parents, and a supportive, family-like learning environment.  Individualized attention and a customized education.  Comprehensive college counseling beginning in 9th grade, with 100% of graduates accepted to competitive four-year colleges and universities.  Sound too good to be true?  It’s not!  Upper School at Rivermont is an exceptional place!

Eligible students must have earned a current year (2010-11) GPA of 3.85 or higher.  For more information, visit and join us Tuesday evening!

Intimate school environments like Rivermont help close achievement gaps between genders, encourage participation in a variety of extra-curricular activities, and prevent students from taking refuge in anonymity.  At Rivermont, conventional high school activities like athletics (basketball, volleyball, cross country, cheerleading), drama, instrumental and vocal music, and National Honor Society are offered alongside unique Rivermont traditions such as International Week, Pancake Tuesday, and the Rivermont Academic Invitational.  A challenging curriculum provides an in-depth foundation in the arts, humanities, and sciences while offering a broad spectrum of electives that allow students to customize their education and create their Rivermont Experience.

This event is open to the public and will be held in the Historic Bettendorf Mansion on the Rivermont campus.  A light supper will be served.  Rivermont Collegiate is located at 1821 Sunset Drive, directly off 18th Street behind K&K Hardware in Bettendorf.
