Rites of Passage

It Takes a Village to Raise a Child

Rites of Passage Reflections Class of 2013

A recent reflection from a parent of a student from the class of 2010:

My daughter Gaylen will be graduating from 8th grade at Scofield on the 24th and will be a freshman at the Center for Global Studies at Brien McMahon come September.  I know for a fact her interest in global cultures and decision to attend CGS and study Japanese was heavily influenced by her participation in Rites of Passage.  She has a global, multi-cultural perspective on life at a far younger age than I ever did - I didn't take my first domestic plane trip until I was 21 and interviewing for engineering jobs in several Eastern cities.  I didn't travel outside the U.S.until my 20's, when I started flying extensively for business.

Thanks again for all you do.  You are an example to us all!

God bless,
