Why Riverside?

Why Riverside?

Be your child’s hero. 

Are you searching for options? Are you looking for a higher rigor in academics? Are you looking for small class sizes? Are you looking for caring teachers and staff?  Are you looking for a safe environment? Would you like prayer and God to be part of your child’s daily life?

Join over 400 students in a safe, academically rigorous setting where small class sizes allow teachers to pour into each individual student. At Riverside, you will find Christian teachers who are committed to Christ and their calling. You will find a school eager to partner with you to cultivate responsible Christian adults with Christ-like character. Your child will find daily encouragement to connect biblical truths with every day living.

We strongly believe in the partnership between the family, church, and school in the raising of our students to seek and honor Christ with their lives. For more than 45 years, Riverside has been providing education to students from over 60 Yakima churches. We value excellence in academics. We challenge our students to think critically and to explore their natural curiosity, and we equip students for success. Over 400 students from Preschool through 12th grade attend Riverside for outstanding curriculum and individualized attention; but most importantly, students come to Riverside because we value – above all – our calling to Christ as a Christian school.

Our 30-acre campus is located on the eastern edge of Yakima, WA, with all grades, Pre-K through Grade 12, on one campus. Whether it be in the classroom, athletic field, playground, or in college-prep, we are committed to transforming the heart of our students towards Christ, while encouraging them to be the best students they can be. 

Thank you for your interest. It is our pleasure to welcome you to Riverside Christian School, where we are committed to developing students to be Rooted in Christ and Ready for Tomorrow.
