Student Stories

“Success” has many definitions in our school community. Being successful means finding a passion and a purpose in life, becoming self-aware, and learning to be competent and confident in your skills. Sometimes being successful means trying something new, conquering a fear, or experiencing joy. Most importantly, we believe that success means moving forward along your own trajectory. 

Discover Success

Being here has made me more comfortable out in the real world. Now I’m going to college. I don’t think I would have been even able to deal with the thought of college when I first got to Rock Point.
