Point School Puerto Rico is a hybrid gap year program for young adult men, ages 18-22, which includes therapeutic support delivered by a licensed clinician, life coaching, support for academic and/or vocational momentum through service work, and cultural immersion with plenty of fun, experiential opportunities.
Point School Puerto Rico is a hybrid gap year program designed for young men, 18-22, who are searching for a one-of-a-kind experience designed just for them. We aim to help our young men grow into adulthood with the ability to thrive. We ask our young people to challenge themselves into being their best selves. We ask them to be vulnerable and address their areas of growth. We are not a program for everyone. We are a program for young men with the will to discover, learn and thrive in new experiences and opportunities. Our young men are fully capable of succeeding in higher education and/or the workforce, but for one reason or another, they have stumbled while emerging into adulthood.
We are a very small program with 6-8 students at a time. Students are encouraged to build strong relationships with their peer and staff to use as a support system during their time at Point School PR. Students will learn how to create and maintain strong healthy relationships and friendships, and understand how to do the same at home.
Point School Puerto Rico is located on the Northeast corner of the island in the beautiful village of Isabela. Isabela is a small village of about 46,000 people. It is known on the island as Jardín del Noroeste, Garden of the Northeast, for its lush landscape of wildflowers. Isabela is a coastal village with both sandy and cliff-lined beaches. There are mountains, rivers, lakes, caves, forests and more. It is also known for its world class surfing. Multiple national surfing competition are held here, but it is also a wonderful place to learn with year round surfing for all levels. Isabela is an athletic town.
