Admissions for 2016-2017 are now open.

We are a small community school in Goa, nestled in a beautiful coconut grove, overlooking the river in Canacona, South Goa. Our innovative and dynamic curriculum serves the needs of the local and international community.  At River House Academy we strive to create an educational environment which uses international academic standards to underpin a creative, holistic and active learning experience.

Our vision is to create a learning environment which inspires our children to become confident, passionate and active global citizens.

Yesterday was our last day of this academic year and what a great year we've had. Huge gratitude to our amazing staff, children and families who have all contributed to making River House Academy truly excellent.

We're all off for a well earned break, ready to start afresh in September.

Here are a few photos of the children giving a yoga presentation at our end of year gathering yesterday afternoon.

Have a great summer everyone 😊
