For Jacob, a class of 2021 graduate, a commitment to mentorship has been a hallmark of his time at Riverdale, including his role as a peer academic leader for ninth-grade students.

An accomplished violist, Jacob was featured on NPR’s From the Top and is a member of Riverdale’s Flume classical music ensemble, which raised over $16,000 to support low-income Bronx families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jacob started with PLUSSED in the summer of 2019, providing insights and strategies that combined personal experience and cognitive psychology research to design an academic environment for the students at Delta Global School. He plans to major in Ethics, Politics, and Economics at Yale University this fall.
