What people say about their Rio experience.
  • There were key faculty who were mentors and treated the kids like their own family— they were firm with discipline, gave honest responses, inspired, supportive, and prepared the kids for the real world.

  • I really enjoyed my two years at Rio Lindo Academy. I learned lessons from teachers and work supervisors that have stuck with me throughout my life. I experienced wonderful friendships and carry lots of treasured memories,

  • This school had such a positive influence in our family’s lives, through the staff and how they interacted with students and family members. The academic standards prepared our child for college and helped him grow as a person. The relationships formed with the staff that trust in God are invaluable. They give another example other than parents on living a Godly life.

  • The scholastics are superior, the social development is multicultural, the faculty truly care. I visited Rio when I was 4 years old and knew that is where I wanted to go to high school. I did and graduated in ’78 and both of my children attended all 4 years. The folks at Rio made sure I could afford it. Oh yes and the campus is beautiful.
