What is Rock Point School?

Who goes to Rock Point School?

We serve students from a variety of backgrounds who have struggled to find their place in more traditional schools. Our students are young people seeking purpose, acceptance, and community. They want to change their lives for the better and are open to help to achieve their goals.

How does Rock Point help students?

Our college-preparatory academics develop students for life after high school, wherever it may take them, and our residential program challenges and captivates student interest in new and exhilarating activities. We are a community in every sense of the word where young people can find a place where they are valued, understood and where they belong. The student experience at Rock Point School is based on relationships and one of our greatest assets is our dedicated educators.

We treat each of our students as individuals and are constantly helping them to identify ways in which they can be successful, both in the classroom and in interactions with their peers.

Where is Rock Point School?

Rock Point School is located on 130 acres of lakefront property in beautiful Burlington, VT. Our students thrive in a unique environment that combines easy access to nature with a small, safe, fun city just down the road. 


Rock Point staff fostered such growth in our son with unwavering support both when he was doing well and when he was struggling. We will never be able to thank them enough.
