Rock Point School is a college-preparatory school designed to meet the needs of average and above average students who need support, structure, and personal attention in the classroom as well as in the dorm at night and on the weekends.
Rock Point students are creative, self-aware young people who have found themselves off track personally and/or academically and are ready to make positive changes to build fulfilling, healthy lives. Our students have come from all over the country and from a wide range of backgrounds. Many choose Rock Point after becoming disillusioned with large, impersonal high schools. Some come to strengthen their skills for living harmoniously with others. When students arrive at Rock Point, what they have in common is their desire to grow, despite apprehension about facing the challenge of looking at themselves honestly, learning to love what is good and improve what needs improving. When students graduate from Rock Point, what they have in common is newfound self-confidence, positive direction for the next phase of their lives, and a clearer sense of what is real and good inside
community service, internships, therapuetic support, and many art offerings.
Rock Point’s 150 acre campus, on the shores of Lake Champlain, includes open fields, wooded trails, beaches, and a private cove. And it’s only two miles from downtown Burlington.
The mission of Rock Point School is to provide a small supportive educational community for teenage girls and boys, where they can become successful students and learn skills for living in a community with peers and adults. The school is committed to providing the religious, educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities necessary to accomplish these goals.
The entire Rock Point community is like a large family, with all the accompanying love and frustrations. Faculty and staff challenge students to understand and embody responsibility, honesty, generosity, and respect for others. Teachers and dorm staff are here to help students learn, grow, and succeed. They meet with students in one-one-one and small group settings, recognizing and encouraging students in their inquiries and endeavors. Thanks to Rock Point's small size and high faculty-to-student ratio, teachers can work with each student at a pace that is consistently challenging and supportive.
