Welcome to Admissions at Riverside School

We understand that parents often start this process with many questions about how to decide what is the best placement for their child.  We encourage you to get to know Riverside School and learn how we have worked for over forty years in the Richmond community to serve the needs of students with dyslexia and other related language-based learning differences.

To learn more about beginning the admission process for the 2017-2018 school year, please contact our Director of Admissions and Transition, Debra Mitchell, at dmitchell@riversideschool.org.


Several times a year, we invite interested families to an open house designed to give you an opportunity to tour our campus and to visit  classrooms so you can see our students and teachers at work.   Students and parents will be present to give their insights into their experience  at Riverside and to answer your questions.

Please contact our Admissions Office at (804) 320-3465 to learn about upcoming Open House events or register online. 

If you would prefer, you may schedule a brief tour to visit our campus and observe our children during their daily schedule.   Again, we ask that you call to make an appointment for this tour (804) 320-3465, so that we can ensure staff is available.
