Since 1991, Archbishop Riordan High School has made many investments into

student learning. From small adjustments to major changes, Riordan has renovated classrooms, refurbished the gym, built a new athletic field, and purchased new technology. 

The Gellert Family Foundation has been supporting Riordan for 27 years, and during that time, they have donated $2.3 million in support, providing funds for renovating the locker rooms, creating the field, and fixing the restrooms. 

This year, the Gellert Family Foundation gifted Riordan $2.25 million. Simon Chiu, Vice President of Advancement, stated that the school is looking into renovating the library, fixing the boiler, and adding aesthetic enhancements to the courtyard.

Aidan Alday ’26 said, “I’m loving the first year at my new school and can’t wait to see what Riordan has planned for the future.”
