About Rock Point School

Rock Point School is an intentionally small, supportive, all-gender boarding school for high school students who are seeking an inclusive alternative to 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, discover their passion, grow, and find success.

Located on a 130-acre lakeside campus in beautiful and culturally rich Burlington, Vermont, Rock Point offers high school students small, engaging classes, experiential learning, close relationships with staff and peers, and ongoing opportunities to discover who they are. Academically, Rock Point supports a range of learning styles and works with students to improve their executive functioning, focus, and self-advocacy. In its dorm program, Rock Point encourages students to have fun, try new things, make friends, and discover what excites them — whether it be snowboarding, digital illustration, or playing music. At Rock Point School, students can fit in and stand out.
