Riverbend Academy was founded in 2014 by Yvette and Derek Graystone as a place for children who want to learn in a tolerant, exciting, innovative, and safe environment. An independent, private school located in Delaware, 10 minutes west of London, Ontario on 7.8 acres, Riverbend Academy provides excellence in academics for boy and girls from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12.
A secular school, Riverbend Academy does not discriminate ? welcoming students willing to put forth his or her best effort in pursuit of the passion that fuels their creativity, curiosity, and thirst for lifelong learning.
Academic achievement is a priority at Riverbend Academy but is tempered with the belief that a happy adult must be prepared for more than school exams. Riverbend Academy`s programs prepare students with life skills, emotional intelligence, physical fitness, confidence, and morality to be equipped to overcome obstacles, and not just prevail but prosper with joy. Using the world-respected Ontario Curriculum as our core, we augmented that with Skills for a Successful Life, the Virtues Project, Aikido, and a nutritious lunch program cooked fresh daily by our on-site chef. Our goal is to ensure our students are not only prepared for their University applications but also have the tools and skills to have a happy successful life.
Riverbend Academy puts a strong emphasis on the moral and ethical behaviour of its students. We hold the belief that happiness in life can only be achieved by being the best person you can be and helping others achieve their goals. We grow by helping others grow. We are successful when we help others achieve their success. Just as we are creating lifelong learners, we are creating lifelong givers.
Always prepared for life?s challenges, Riverbend Academy students rise above adversity and make a difference in the world.
