Why Compass Rose?

Compass Rose Academy is a Christian organization committed to enriching the lives of children and families through emotional healing, personal development and spiritual growth.

Located in the Midwest, Compass Rose is designed to help teenage girls ages 14-18 and their families succeed at home and in life through both prevention services and a residential treatment center for troubled teen girls.

The residential treatment center works to intensively redirect, rebuild and restore young women who are suffering from problems with school, home or family.
