Rock Point School
Ages: 14+ and up
Cost: Day Students Tuition for 2011/2 is $26,000
Rock Point School is a small, supportive day and boarding school serving about 40 high school students. 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. With small classes, individualized attention, and deeply devoted teachers and staff, we are able to address each student’s specific strengths and challenges, and help them make progress in ways appropriate to them. In addition to math, science, English, history, and art, we offer electives, physical education, wellness class, and a senior seminar, which prepares upper-level students for their next step beyond high school.
Located on 130 acres on the shores of Lake Champlain, we offer a wide range of activities, from hiking, sailing, skiing and snowboarding, to drama class, stain glass, and cooking. We encourage our students to have fun, laugh, try new things, make friends, and discover what excites them. In all aspects of our school, we cultivate a thriving, supportive community, where students learn the importance of being active, healthy, productive, and responsible, and have a chance to become their best selves.
