Our Mission

Riverway Learning Community is committed to the foundation of a
more hopeful and enlightened future by the development of an environment that
nurtures the growth of mind, body, and spirit, both as individuals and as members
of the larger community. Riverway will promote respect for the simultaneous
independence and interdependence of all things.

Riverway Learning Community is a charter public school and is therefore open to all students. Importantly, we have unique programs that define who and what we are, so it is important that families not only want an alternative to the local district but specifically want the kind of education we provide.
