Rivermont Schools, with locations in Lynchburg, Roanoke, Rockbridge, Dan River, Chase City, Tidewater, Alleghany Highlands, and Hampton are specifically designed for students who cannot participate in regular school programs due to psychological problems, emotional difficulties or learning disabilities, but who do not require inpatient treatment. Rivermont Schools provide the opportunity for students to progress academically, emotionally, behaviorally and help students to build self-esteem.

At Rivermont Schools, students learn to rely on their personal strengths to resolve problems. They are taught the same subjects as one would find in public schools, but with greater emphasis on managing behavior, interpersonal skills and family involvement.

Classes are small, usually eight to 10 students, and are taught by special education instructors and counselors. Together, these professionals help students reach acceptable standards of behavior and academic levels in the typical school environment. Teachers coordinate the course of study with the student's public school to ensure a smooth transition when the student is ready to return to that setting.

Rivermont Schools are licensed by the Virginia Department of Education, and all class credits earned are fully transferable. All Rivermont Schools are fully accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Specialized Education Facilities (VAISEF) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
