Celebrating our Centennial

In September of 1917, The Rippowam School (later known as The Bedford Rippowam School) opened its doors to its first class of students; 100 years later, Rippowam Cisqua School continues to welcome curious, engaged, and eager learners into its community.

As the heart and soul of our school, the children remain the focal point of our energy and efforts, and we could not be happier to help them grow. Rippowam Cisqua School remains, as it states in our school philosophy, “. . . a school of joyous and enlightened learning; a place where children come and not where they are sent.”

I encourage you to look through this website to learn more about our program, and come back often. We will be updating this site with more information about our inspiring campus reconstruction project and the events marking our Centennial Celebration in the fall of 2017.

More importantly, I invite you to visit the School in person. We would love to meet you.
