Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Riverside Academy. We offer alternative education programs in the Cambridge-Isanti Schools and surrounding districts with comprehensive programming for students in 10-12th grade. Please look at additional website links to find individual program descriptions. 

All students enrolled in our program must meet the State Graduation Incentive Requirements established by Education Minnesota. A supportive atmosphere and services are critical for students meeting our enrollment criteria.  It is our intent to come along side students, parents, guardians, districts and communities in preparing enrolled students to meet the unknown opportunities they will face in the future.

I have worked over 22 years in education and specifically with at-risk learners. I am fortunate to serve the families and students in our community with the support of the Cambridge-Isanti Schools. My goal is for all students to achieve beyond what they believe they can do and to be the voice of inspiration as they walk the ladder of growth. No one arrives at the end without a journey in the middle. It is the journey that teaches us critical skills, lessons and beliefs we will access forever. 

The students and staff often hear me say, "Our students and staff are amazing!"  Please check our website often and celebrate learning with us!
