Academics

Overview

Riverview East Academy, a school for preschool to 12th-grade students, offers a college-preparatory high school where students receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for life after high school.

As one of the few schools in the Tristate covering this preschool to 12th-grade range, Riverview East offers unique learning experiences. Students will build strong ties to the school and the community over the years.

Riverview East offers an environment where the school community works to ensure that all students succeed. The school continues to develop the necessary academic and social supports each student needs to achieve success and become a productive, responsible citizen.

Riverview’s 7th- and 8th-grade students learn in their own pods within the large building, have a separate lunch period and are offered opportunities to take high school courses for credit.

Health Care Focus

Riverview East Academy offers preparation for advanced training in health care careers and exercise science, which leads to study at community colleges and four-year colleges and universities.

Juniors and seniors interested in careers in nursing can participate in Riverview's nursing program. Successful completion of the program and passing required examinations will qualify students for employment as State Tested Nursing Assistants.

Students also can earn certifications in phlebotomy (blood work), Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), Patient Care Assistant or Physical Therapy Technician.

  • Classrooms feature technology to aid learning.
  • Full-time school counselor available.
  • Students wear uniforms to keep the focus on class work.

Advisory

Advisory Teams are made up of a small group of students and a teacher. They are a place where students make plans: for school, for college, for their careers and for their futures. This is a safe time to talk about barriers and needs; to be serious, but to have fun, too. Advisories are helping students build academic and social skills by breaking down barriers, fostering relationships, strengthening listening skills and, most important, building trust.

CPS' My Tomorrow Initiative

My Tomorrow is a new vision of education for CPS in which every student is prepared for the remarkable future racing straight at us.
