Rock Point School

1 Rock Point Road,
Burlington, VT, 05408-0540
Tel: (802)863-1104
Grades: 9 - 12 | 40 students
Rock Point School is a small, supportive day and boarding school for young people who have not found success in other more traditional school settings.
Rock Point is a place where young people - who have found themselves off-track academically, socially, and personally - are seen for who they are, take healthy risks, grow, find success, and discover their passion.  Located in beautiful and culturally rich Burlington, VT, we offer high school students small, engaging classes, experiential learning, close relationships with staff, and ongoing opportunities to discover who they are.
 Academically, we support a range of learning styles, and work with students to improve their organization, self-advocacy, and study skills.
In our dorm program, we encourage our students to have fun, laugh, try new things, make friends, and discover what excites them -- whether it be snowboarding, digital animation, or playing our piano.
