Ninety-nine years after opening, Rippowam Cisqua School (RCS) continues to provide a top-notch private school education for boys and girls from Pre-K through Grade 9. True to its philosophy, RCS is “a school of joyous and enlightened learning; a place where children come and not where they are sent.”
The school provides each student with the opportunity to demonstrate they understand the material they are learning and, more importantly, can apply that knowledge in meaningful ways. As secondary schools are evolving to meet the changing demands of colleges and universities, RCS continues the long tradition of graduating students who excel and lead at the next stage of their academic lives.
Over the last six years, RCS’s Master Plan has been the driving force behind the Meyers Fields expansion, the new entrance to the Lower Campus, and the renovated fifth and sixth grade wing. As the school approaches its 100th year, the renovation of the Upper Campus marks the final phase – a comprehensive and exciting project that includes a new Library and Media Center, a new Dining Hall, an Innovation Center, a Courtyard Amphitheater, new art studios, and new science labs.
