Located just minutes from Manhattan is Riverdale Country School, an independent institution dedicated to developing minds, building character and creating community. Founded in 1907, the school recently embarked on an extensive, three-phase construction project. From the start, Riverdale Country School knew such an undertaking would be a challenge. But in drawing upon First Republic’s extensive experience guiding independent schools through tax-exempt financing, it was able to complete the funding process with ease. Riverdale Country School looks forward to working further with the Bank to enhance its campuses and provide another century of innovative education that prepares students to be citizens of the world.
