For 35 years, Rite of Passage has offered a diverse continuum of care to troubled, at-risk and vulnerable youth. From community and foster family programs to after-school mentoring, charter schools, residential programs and transition services, Rite of Passage improves the lives of youth. Through our innovative and evidence-based services, our youth become active, educated advocates in their own communities.
Combining Evidence and Experience for Over 30 Years
For over three decades, Rite of Passage has offered at-risk and vulnerable youth opportunities to succeed through accredited education, industry-recognized vocational training, evidence-based practices and valuable relationships with our community partnerships.
As a learning organization, Rite of Passage follows the latest research in the child welfare, education and juvenile justice fields, and offers youth the latest, evidence-based approaches.
Youth thrive in Rite of Passage programs because we emphasize the 4 R’s: relationships, rigor, relevance and rituals. In our Instructional Framework™, Administrators, teachers and students work collaboratively to achieve academic goals.
Families and Communities
Rite of Passage is an advocate of families and communities. We involve family in youth's treatment planning, academic progress and welcome families to our campuses to celebrate youths' successes.
