Red or blue binder?  Crayons or colored pencils?  Ballpoint or gel pens?  As you begin preparing for the upcoming school year, don’t forget the most important choice – the school itself.  As a parent, you have the freedom and right to choose a school with a philosophy and approach to learning that fits your child.  Where do teachers create educational experiences that suit individual needs?  Where are students motivated to be enthusiastic about learning in an academically rigorous environment?  Where are students part of a supportive learning community that stimulates personal growth, nurtures intellectual curiosity, and encourages critical thinking and innovation?  At Rivermont Collegiate, of course!

Rivermont, located in Bettendorf, is the Quad Cities’ only private, independent, nonsectarian college-prep school for students in preschool through twelfth grade.  At Rivermont, small class sizes, individualized attention, and high academic standards result in students who nourish personal talents while gaining a critical foundation to life and learning.  Rivermont infuses a traditional curriculum with innovative ideas and technology, as well as the freedom to take risks in academics, leadership, athletics, arts, and service.  100% of Rivermont graduates are accepted to four-year colleges and universities and over 90% earn four-year renewable college merit scholarships.

What are you waiting for?  Explore your educational options!  Drop in for Open Tours on Tuesday, August 2nd from 8:30-10:00 a.m. No appointment necessary!  This casual event gives families the opportunity to tour campus and explore our philosophy and programs. 

Rivermont Collegiate is located at 1821 Sunset Drive, directly off 18th Street behind K&K Hardware in Bettendorf.  Visit us online at!
