Who We Are

Who We Are

Point School Puerto Rico is a hybrid gap year program designed for young men who are searching for a one-of-a-kind gap year 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 hybrid model includes the components of a traditional gap year such as cultural immersion, experiential activities, and humanitarian efforts, and also includes additional structure and support in personal development and wellness. With mental health wellness supported by a licensed clinician, life coaching with trained mentors, and support for academic and professional momentum, each young man receives the amount of challenge and support necessary for growth and flourishing.

We achieve our mission through a three phased program designed to meet the individualized goals of each young adults we serve. Readiness for each stage is decided by the wellness team in conjunction with the individual.

 

 

To Young Men:

There will be room to grow in your individualized strengths, passions, and future goals. Our staff will challenge you to step outside of your comfort zone to become your best self. This experience is intense and deeply gratifying.
