Imagination has the power to transform culture.
Imagination has the power to inspire the young–awakening in them a greater vision of life and guiding them on a journey to discover their gifts, and pursue their dreams.
Riverside is guiding a new generation of imaginative and adventurous culture builders who are rooted in the humanities and faith. Our civilization is at a crossroads, and it is vital that we pass on the cultural memory anchored by the permanent things of life which guide us all on the adventurous pilgrimage to our heavenly home.
Riverside is a Center for Imaginative Learning. We are not a full time school. Since our inception we have provided programs that inspire the imaginations of the young and cultural events that foster a creative community of families, educators, artists, storytellers, craftsmen, and adventurers. Riverside is a prayerful community in which there are many denominations of the Christian faith represented, as well as fellow pilgrims who seek an educational community rooted in beauty, goodness, and truth. Though we profess a Catholic view of the human person and purpose of education, we are dedicated to finding common ground with the various wings of Christendom through an understanding of the sacramental imagination expressed particularly well by J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
The plan for Riverside is to continue growing as a supplemental education center dedicated to Imaginative Learning. As our programs and community grow, we hope to provide this particular kind of learning, much needed at this time in our country’s history.
