Since 2000, we have led the effort in Rio to educate students from all over the world through a Biblical worldview. We focus on educating students in an inclusive and technologically rich environment.


Our Mission

As an Aletheia Education Group school we focus on living our vision of being "intentionally international, deliberately Christian, purposely academic". 

Intentionally international:

RIS student citizenship represent over 30 countries. RIS faculty and staff come from over 10 countries. School curriculum and teaching methods seek to utilize the best practices from around the world in order to educate globally-minded and internationally competent students.

Deliberately Christian:

RIS is an open-enrollment school accepting students and families from all religious beliefs. However, RIS is a Christian school which educates students from a Biblical worldview and emphasizes Christian values and character. Students attend Bible classes and chapels which allow them to develop their Biblical cognition. 

Purposely academic:

The primary focus at RIS is to educate a diverse set of students according to their needs and the school's expected student outcomes. This is accomplished through challenging coursework, rigorous examinations, and consistent teaching methodology. 

“When I saw the smiles on my kids’ faces, I knew this was the place for them.”
— Matt Brown- two students currently at RIS
“Our kids have attended RIS for 3.5 years. The kids absolutely loved going to school each and every day and the whole atmosphere of warmth, care, and genuine interest in each child and their family, has meant that RIS has been like a second home for us.

The teachers and staff are so dedicated to their job and this really makes the learning environment amazing. We have been blessed beyond our expectations for having the opportunity to enroll our kids in RIS.”
— Rasmussen Family - two students formerly at RIS
