Become a RippKid

While the Admissions Office is working remotely as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19, we will continue to assist families in finding the right school for their child through our virtual visit experiences. We are also here to answer your questions and connect you with the RCS community in educational and interactive ways.

What Does it Mean to Be a RippKid?

RippKids can achieve anything because we believe in their infinite ability to do so.
Albert Einstein said, “I never teach my pupils. I only provide the conditions in which they can learn.” When students walk through the doors of Rippowam Cisqua School, they are embarking on an exciting adventure that is fueled by their sense of wonder. By cultivating their imagination through play, exploration and discovery, we help students uncover the joy of learning with experiences that spark their intellectual curiosity and support their personal growth.
At Rippowam Cisqua School, your child’s educational journey starts with being known  a philosophy that is central to how our faculty and staff connect with your child. Our teachers, who specialize in the social-emotional development of children in PreKindergarten through Grade 9, understand what motivates your child to succeed and will help them scale any roadblocks they may encounter. It is these strong student/teacher relationships supported by small classes sizes, flexible learning spaces, and individualized attention that serve as the levers that stretch, challenge, and lift young minds during the most impressionable years of their lives.
Rippowam Cisqua graduates are known for being smart, confident, and energetic leaders. In addition to their academic achievement, it is often their interpersonal skills and poise that are most notable in our students. Parents and Admissions Directors agree: RippKids stand out in a crowd. When your child graduates from Rippowam Cisqua School, they will emerge focused on their unique opportunity to choose the next stop on their academic journey and ready to embrace what their future may bring.
