Founded in 1880, Riverview is an all-boys day and boarding school
catering for Years 5–12 and located 12km from the centre of Sydney. Riverview
is a Catholic school moulded in the Ignatian tradition, where each boy is
provided the opportunities to discover the talents God has given him and use
them “for the greater glory of God”. The school strives for excellence in all
things, as is evident in the College motto, Quantum potes, tantum aude (“As
Much as You Can Do, So Much Dare to Do”), which challenges students to go
beyond mediocrity and achieve their full potential.

Facilities: A legacy of the vision of the early Jesuits, the College
is fortunate to have spacious grounds covering over 110 acres on picturesque
Burns Bay and the Lane Cove River. From the state-of-the-art library, completed
in 2008, to the 129-year-old St Michael’s House, the buildings and grounds
cater for the academic, physical and spiritual needs of the boys while
maintaining a connection with the rich traditions of the past.Curriculum:

Extracurricular activities: A strong emphasis on debating, Music and

community service opportunities in which each boy must partake every year. More
in-depth challenges are provided through the College’s Immersion Program which
brings staff and students to marginalised communities in Australia and
overseas. Finding “God in all things and all things in God” becomes more than
just words — it is a real experience.

Welfare and personal development: Each student in Years 5 to 8 has a
homeroom teacher while those in Years 9 to 12 are placed in the care of a
Housemaster and Tutor, who meet on a daily basis with each boy and offer advice
and guidance. The homeroom teachers, Housemasters and Tutors are supported by
careers advisers, chaplains and school counsellors. Additionally, the Centre
for Teaching and Learning Support offers a wide range of services to all
students, including both an extension program for gifted and talented students
