School Day Hours
Our school day begins at 8:00am and ends at 2:30pm. Parents may drop off their students in the lower parking lot as early as 7:45 am and pick up no later than 2:40PM.
Getting To and From School
Section 1374 of the Public School Code of 1949 governs transportation including the transportation of eligible children to approved private schools. If a student is enrolled in a day program at an approved private school, he/she should be given transportation during the Monday-to-Friday school week. Contact the transportation department of the school district in which you live to arrange for transportation to Riverstone United Christian Academy at 430 Hannum Ave. West Chester, PA 19380.
Here at Riverstone, we want to build confidence and promote a positive learning environment without distractions from learning or teaching. We want our uniform to promote unity and allow the students to build pride in their school.

- We teach to the proper order and purpose of humanity
- We find truth in Scripture – God gives us guidance on how to treat others and ourselves, and gives us a purpose for it all
- Our aim is to equip students with everything they need to be able to stand strong and share their narrative for the beliefs they hold.
