Our Unique Community
Rock Point School attracts students who want to know, and share, what is good in themselves. Year after year, we have courageous adolescents and young adults who come to the school to learn, and share, and grow. Our biggest resource as a school is our human resource, our community of students and staff. The school is known for its unique educational program, but what truly makes Rock Point unique is the students. They become the stewards of Rock Point School. They support each other when things are hard. When the community, or an individual, faces hardships, our students learn how to facilitate conversations around these topics at the weekly community meeting. Students share their love and frustrations. They learn to speak up, to hear others’ thoughts, and to see that solutions are as available as problems. The entire community––staff and students––challenge themselves to understand and embody responsibility, honesty, generosity, and respect for others. Teachers and dorm staff are here to help students learn, grow, and succeed.
Below, check out a video created by Champlain College Senior, Charles Dalgleish, for his course work in Communications. The video attempts to capture some of the Rock Point School dorm life and community. Thanks to Charlie and the Rock Point School students who spoke off-the-cuff with him for this project!
