    Rivet School is a reimagined college experience for traditionally underserved students, including Black and Latino students, and those who are the first in their family to enroll in college. We partner with flexible, career-aligned BA degree programs, and provide a hands-on, cohort-based experience with personalized coaching. Our students get the attention and support they need to attain a bachelor’s degree in as little as 2-3 years.

    Building better pathways for aspiring teachers across L.A.

    Teacher pipelines are broken and often don't represent the students we serve, so Rivet School and Alder Graduate School of Education are working together to build a better pathway for school-based workers to become teachers – leading to a stronger and more racially diverse teacher workforce. While working full time, these staff will earn their BA in an innovative degree program at Rivet School before going on to earn a MA and teaching credential at Alder GSE – unlocking economic opportunity and a fulfilling lifelong career in education.
