Rivermont School Lynchburg

The Rivermont School Lynchburg provides a special education program for students, ages 5-22, with special needs,  including autism who have difficulty learning in a traditional school setting. By teaching students how to make better choices, we offer them a chance to experience success in an academic environment.

Rivermont’s dedicated team of professionals teaches students to rely on their personal strengths for resolving problems, building self-esteem and gaining confidence. One of our primary goals is to help students learn to manage their behaviors so they can return to their home schools, graduate and become productive citizens.

Rivermont School - Lynchburg was the first Rivermont School, opening its doors in 1987. We pride ourselves in relationship building with students, families, our community, local agencies and area colleges such as Liberty University and Lynchburg College. Our high school students have also been training at Central Virginia Community College since 2015. Students work with the Red Cross and area food banks, instilling a sense of purpose and empathy as well as promoting an active role in our community. Our staff is invested in the well-being of our students and ensuring that their social, emotional and academic needs are met.
