Mission, Vision and Values

The Riekes Center exists for the enhancement of the individual student. 

Our mission is to provide each student with the best possible opportunity to define and accomplish individual goals, build character and learn transferable life skills through Creative Arts, Athletic Fitness and Nature Awareness, in an environment of non-judgment and mutual respect. 

We provide these opportunities regardless of the student’s ability to pay, or ability to perform. Each person’s uniqueness and potential is celebrated.


The Riekes Center thrives on providing transformational outcomes for our students.

At the Riekes Center, all students, all goals, and all interests are equally important. It’s a place where real world diversity thrives and empathy is encouraged. The Core Values of Self Supervision, Honest Communication and Sensitivity to Others are the Center’s operational and social standards.
