Riverpoint Academy is an innovative, award-winning, project-based STEM + Entrepreneurial high school in the Mead School District. The focus at RA is on 21st century skills, leadership, and nurturing the creative passion within each student. Students take on real-world challenges and, using a design process, work to develop and implement solutions. Professionals from the community work with students to create authentic learning experiences as they dive deeply into science, engineering, mathematics, the arts, humanities and entrepreneurship — all fueled by radical collaboration with peers, the use of powerful technology and a deeply caring and devoted staff.
For the past three years, Riverpoint Academy has boasted a 100% graduation rate for seniors. Graduates choose many college and careers options, with most selecting STEM-focused pathways for their post-high school endeavors.
Because Riverpoint Academy provides a small, personalized learning environment for its students, enrollment is limited. Riverpoint Academy's current enrollment is 170 students. Applications are accepted each year, beginning January 1st through March 1st. For this recent application window, the faculty received over 90 applications that are now being considered for admission for the Fall of 2019. For the third year in a row, the school anticipates having a wait list for enrollment, despite increasing the school's capacity to 200 students for the 2019-2020 school year.
