Why River City Scholars?

Founded on academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, River City Scholars is a school like no other –one that can lead to a lifetime of success. We provide a safe learning environment and our exceptional teachers individualize instruction based on your child’s needs. In addition, we focus on real-world skills and how to be a good person. Our students also draft a social contract that reinforces their commitment to their school, their teacher, and each other.

"Excellent school! I hope to send all my kids here in the future. Thank you River City Scholars for all the great effort and keep up the excellence in education you have achieved." - River City Scholars Parent

We are grateful to all the professionals who gave their time today to show us what they do in their careers and answer questions. Our students were able to hear from news anchors, lawyers, engineers, architects, a politician, author, GVSU professor, and more!
Join our team! River City Scholars will be represented this year at Relay For Life- Grand Rapids. We will be hosting a children's area near the main stage on June 9th from noon to midnight. Fundraising has been done at school... we just need teammates. Also, you do not have to be there the whole time... as many people work and have school... Lets join together and support this great cause and get River City's name out there!
