Enrolling at Riverside High School means your student will receive the same award-winning high school education as those who attend Herron High School – our original campus in downtown Indianapolis. Riverside High School is founded on the same belief that a classical, liberal arts education, where students are steeped in great historical thought and invention, is the best preparation for a future life of leadership and service. Riverside High School, like its predecessor, Herron High School, will distinguish itself with an educational experience which combines a classical, liberal arts curriculum with a college preparatory focus.

Enrollment applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can apply by clicking on the “Enroll Here” button.

Riverside High School will open in the fall of 2017.  Should there be a delay in construction, we will notify families as soon as possible about our temporary location. Students seamlessly used temporary space prior to the opening of Herron High School in 2005.
