Rivermont Collegiate is thrilled to introduce Todd Zachary as our new Headmaster. Mr. Zachary joins our school from Pennsylvania, where his most recent position is Department Chair and Senior Aerospace Science Instructor at North Penn High School in Lansdale, PA. Mr. Zachary is an extraordinary educator and respected leader – a retired Colonel in the Air Force with over 20 years of military experience and education, including serving as Head of School for the United States Air Force Academy Preparatory School in Colorado Springs, CO. Mr. Zachary believes in strong community relations, expanded professional development, innovative technology in classrooms, and a team approach to improving programs and curriculum.

"I was drawn to Rivermont Collegiate because of the unsurpassed passion and commitment of the entire school community – staff, faculty, and parents – to the education and development of its energetic student body." Zachary said. "I am truly honored to join this remarkable school with its rich tradition and bright future. I am eager to lead an incredibly dedicated and capable staff in taking the next step forward in guiding children to success, both academically and in life. Go Lions!"

Rivermont has been educating students in the Quad Cities since 1884 and we are eager to welcome Mr. Zachary. This is an exciting step for the future of our school, which holds such a rich history. Mr. Zachary's role as Headmaster at Rivermont will begin in July 2013.

Rivermont, located in Bettendorf, is the Quad Cities' only private, independent college prep school for preschool through 12th grade, with students from throughout the Quad City area. The school was originally organized as St. Katharine's School, an Episcopal school for girls located in Davenport. In 1968, St. Katharine's dropped its boarding program, became co-educational, and added St. Mark's to its name. In 1973, St. Katharine's – St. Mark's moved to its present location and the name was changed to Rivermont Collegiate in 2001. At Rivermont, students are encouraged to develop their potential and take risks in academics, leadership, athletics, arts, and service. With a challenging academic experience in a family-like environment, Rivermont students build a solid foundation, nourish personal talents and passions, and develop a lifelong love of learning.
