Welcome to Jupiter Christian School! We are so excited to have you here and we know that God has great things in store for your child.
My name is Susan Rivera, and I am the interim principal of the Lower School. In 2000, my family moved to Florida from Pennsylvania, and fell in love with Florida life and have been here ever since. My daughter, Kiana, is a 2014 JCS graduate. Following her time at JCS, she attended Palm Beach Atlantic University and graduated in 2017 with a degree in Public Relations. When not at school, I enjoy cooking, reading, listening to music, traveling, and spending time with my family.
This is my 22nd year as an educator. I have experience serving in both a public school and Christian school setting as both a teacher and an administrator. I have taught every grade level except kindergarten, 1st, 4th, and 12th. Throughout my journey, I have served as a Title I Reading Intervention Specialist, English department head, Middle School lead teacher, and Summer Camp Director. I’ve most recently served JCS as Director of Curriculum and Instruction. My close family would share an early calling to work with children, as I’ve always been drawn to them even at a young age. I absolutely love having the opportunity to invest in the next generation.
Jupiter Christian is an excellent school which I’ve been privileged to be a part of since 2005. Both as a parent and an educator, I’ve experienced the blessings of the JCS family. You will find that the staff is very warm and welcoming. They truly care about your child and your family. Our desire is to excel in educating students in a nurturing environment so they can engage their community and impact the world for Jesus Christ. I look forward to working with each of you this school year.
