Create, explore, and learn with Rock Point School this summer!

Summer Session July 7 - August 2, 2024

Rock Point School is offering a dynamic summer boarding and day session to keep the academic juices flowing, engage in social, emotional, and community living skills building, and enjoy some great Vermont summer fun, all while getting to create your own graphic novel!

Create. Explore. Learn.

Summer Session days are filled with project-based class time with experienced and supportive educators and adventure-based experiences on and off-campus, taking advantage of all Vermont offers in the summer.
"I wrote a book this summer" a student stands presenting their book, image stylized as a graphic novel. This summer, we'll be learning everything there is to know about graphic novels! Explore and discuss popular graphic novels, meet local authors, and learn from their experiences. 
The session will culminate in each student creating an original graphic novel, and it can even potentially earn you academic credit! 
Don't think you're an artist? Don't worry! Graphic novels don't hinge on artistic ability - anything ranging from stick figures to complex digital illustrations have found success in the graphic novel world and will find success in our Summer Session.
