President’s Welcome

Welcome to Archbishop Riordan High School!

Archbishop Riordan High School is a dynamic school community serving boys in the Catholic Marianist tradition. We aspire to offer our students a firm foundation in the Roman Catholic faith and hope to inspire them in the imitation of Christ.

Students come from all over the world to receive a Riordan education. Why? With an international boarding program, international day program, and a stellar college prep education for all, Riordan offers rich opportunities for students to become successful. Students explore a wide spectrum of curricular offerings and have access to award winning extra curricular programs; everything a young man needs to find and cultivate his talents.

Our young Crusaders aren’t simply our students, they are souls with eternal destinies. With our religious focus, we ensure that we offer our students integral spiritual formation opportunities.

Riordan students have the chance to partake in a multitude of Advanced Placement and Honors courses in Science, English, Math, History, and Language or get their knuckles greasy and gain a solid conceptual understanding of auto mechanics in our unique Auto Shop. Or, they can take Engineering classes and learn how to code, design objects using a 3D printer, and be part of the maker movement in the Maker Space.

We educate in family spirit. We provide a quality education. We educate for service, justice, and peace. We educate for adaptation and change. We are the Archbishop Riordan Crusaders and we hope you’ll take the opportunity to become familiar with our school or come and visit us on Phelan Avenue.

At your service,

Andrew T. Currier, Ph.D.
