Michael A. Riffel High School is a Catholic high school in the Walsh Acres/Lakeridge neighbourhood of northwest Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. It was opened in 1985 to cater to the city's then-rapidly growing northwest quadrant, and to alleviate the congestion at Archbishop M.C. O'Neill High School. The school was named in honor of Mr. Michael A. Riffel, former trustee of the Regina Catholic School Division. It is also home to the Royals athletic program. The school originally opened with 145 students, and has now grown to fulfill the needs of over 800 students.

Riffel has four feeder elementary schools: St. Angela Merici School, St. Bernadette School, St. Jerome School, and St. Josaphat School.[1]
