Transitioning to Rivendell Mid-Year

At Rivendell School, we welcome mid-year school transfers. Whether your child is feeling lost in a classroom with a large student-to-teacher ratio, struggling in a particular subject, or you’re new to Fort Collins, our independent private school is a place where families can develop a new relationship and view of what the right elementary school education can mean for their child.

  • Every new student is assessed, one-on-one with their teacher, to find out where they are academically and what learning strategies will work best for them.
  • Rivendell’s small, close-knit community means your child will feel welcome and included right away.
  • Open teacher-parent communication provides the understanding and peace of mind parents need during the transition.

If you’d like to learn more about a mid-year move to Rivendell, contact our admissions specialist to arrange a tour or attend one of our Open House events. Elementary years should be a fun, invigorating time for children to develop a deep love of learning!

"All the teachers deal skillfully and creatively with positive tactics to reroute behaviors, and subsequently, both my sons are thriving, flourishing, and excelling at Rivendell just the way they are." —Rachel, Rivendell parent
