At Rite of Passage, it is our mision to provide an environment where all youth feel safe, learning thrives, and accountability for behavior is a source of pride. We believe that changing behavior first requires an atmosphere of trust and safety and that all student needs are met.
This is why Rite of Passage's facilities are licensed, accredited and meet the highest standards and requirements of our industry. Our facilities are safe, clean, structured and controlled, and give youth a sense of well-being. Meeting the students' needs and ensuring their health, safety and welfare is key to our success.
