Archie at Riverdale High was a comic book title published by Archie Comics from August 1972 to February 1987, focusing on the Archie gang's day to day exploits at Riverdale High School.

Archie at Riverdale High differed from most Archie Series comic books in the following ways:

  • The cover of the book displayed a teaser for one of the stories inside, complete with a "Don't miss..." description. For most Archie comics of the time, the cover had a gag bearing little connection to the inside material.
  • At least one of the stories—usually the cover story—had a more serious tone than the usual fare; it either taught a moral lesson, or portrayed the gang being thrown into a dangerous (sometimes life-or-death) situation.
  • At least one of the stories—including the aforementioned "serious" one—was often but not always 10 pages long, rather than the usual 5 or 6 pages. Some of the issues had 2 10-page stories, rather than the usual 4 5-page sequences.

The comic Life with Archie had a similar format.
