At a Glance

Riverwalk Academy is a public charter school located in the Rock Hill, SC area around Lake Wylie.  The mission of Riverwalk Academy is to lead students to achieve, through authentic project-based learning experiences, the knowledge and inquiry skills they need to succeed in life, college, and their future careers.

Riverwalk Academy currently serves students up to 10th grade with plans for future growth.  Ultimately Riverwalk will expect future student classes to be “K16 Ready.”  K16 Ready is the idea of combining a K thru 12 and 4yr college education.  The purpose of K16 Ready is to begin a “college going culture” in the hearts and minds of students and parents.  Future Riverwalk students will take dual credit college courses at York Technical College.  By the time they graduate students may have up to 40 college hours.
