About Us

Rock Point School is an intentionally small, independent, co-ed boarding high school in Burlington, Vermont on the shores of Lake Champlain. We are proud to have been founded in 1928 with a mission that remains strong to this day.

The mission of Rock Point School is to provide a small, supportive, educational community for young people, where they can become successful students and learn skills for living in a community with peers and adults. The school is committed to providing academic, cultural, spiritual, and recreational opportunities to accomplish these goals.

Our college-preparatory academics help students develop skills for life after high school, wherever it may take them, and our residential program challenges and captivates student interest in new and exhilarating activities. We are a community in every sense of the word where young people can find a place where they are valued, understood, and where they belong. The student experience at Rock Point School is based on relationships and one of our greatest assets is our dedicated educators. We treat each of our students as individuals and are constantly helping them to identify ways in which they can be successful, both in the classroom and in interactions with their peers.

We serve students from a variety of backgrounds who have struggled to find their place in more traditional schools. Our students are young people seeking purpose, acceptance, and community. They want to change their lives for the better and are open to help to achieve their goals.

Rock Point School is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
