High Rocks is a place where young women are encouraged to step up as leaders every day.
From navigating a group through the wilderness to standing up for the rights of students at their school, High Rocks girls are making their voices heard, both out there in the world and here on the mountainside at the High Rocks.
Staff work with the girls in many contexts, including: tutoring, group service projects, special trips, college preparation, college-level classes and summer camps. In these different contexts, staff often occupy the role of “facilitator.” The girls are the ones who lead and labor, make decisions in a democratic fashion and support one another to take academic risks and accept growth-inspiring challenges. High Rocks values a true exchange of ideas, where all voices are equally valued and appreciated.
