A coed independent boarding high school
Rock Point School summer session offers a chance for a fun, healthy summer and an interdisciplinary approach to learning, both in and out of the classroom. We invite students to explore the world around them with a naturalist’s lens. Due to COVID-19, we know that summer plans are difficult to make. With that in mind, we have decided to continue remote learning and programming for Summer 2020.
We are ready to launch an online summer program! Our students do well with engagement, structure, a chance to earn some needed credits, and most of all, healthy connections with staff and peers. Rock Point School has been able to deliver a remote learning program that accomplishes these goals since early March when students left campus, and we are confident that we can continue to provide this kind of online programming through the summer.

The online session will be a mix of academic and social opportunities. On Monday through Wednesday, there will be daily morning meetings which will be a time to connect and check-in as a group. After morning meeting, teachers will facilitate academic explorations, including credit recovery. These explorations will be guided by student interests and needs with structure and support provided by experienced teachers. Study hall will also be a time when students can get support from teachers.
Each student will have a weekly advising meeting to review academics, social engagement, and general well-being. On Thursdays, along with our morning meeting and a study hall, there will be an Enrichment Class which may focus on music, art, cooking, creative writing, nature, and virtual trips around Vermont and beyond. We will also offer a weekly opportunity for parents to chat with each other and a Rock Point staff.
