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.

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.
