RPDS Business Partners Program
An Investment in Educational Excellence
Focused on the future, the Riverside Presbyterian Day School (RPDS) Business Partners Program was started in 2012 as an opportunity to encourage mutually beneficial relationships between our private elementary school and mission-appropriate business, corporate and/or industry partners.
Steeped in tradition and located in the heart of the historic Riverside community, RPDS is the oldest private elementary school in Jacksonville. Since its founding in 1948, RPDS has grown from one Kindergarten class of 19, to a fully-accredited Preschool (PreK 3 - PreK 4), Kindergarten and Elementary School (1st - 6th Grades) with over 460 students.
As is common in most private schools, tuition at RPDS covers 85% of each child’s education. The additional 15% is comprised of funds raised through the Business Partners Program, special events and The Promise Fund, Riverside's annual giving campaign.
Support from our business partners enables RPDS to provide:
- Need-based financial assistance
- Innovative academic curricula
- Cutting-edge technology
- Enhancements to the campus professional education and for faculty and staff
By participating, members of the Business Partners Program achieve positive visibility in the RPDS community throughout the year, while helping the school achieve its mission to nurture healthy hearts, hands and minds for the 21st century.
