Can you have unique pages appear for registered Joomla users?

I have a website I built in Joomla 2.5 that students use to access lesson information. Currently, when a student logs in, they have access to the pages of all the students. Is there a way to create pages only accessible (or viewable) to the student logging in?

For instance, I would like students to see a page that marks their progress that I could update.

Step 1. Student Logs in: John Doe
Step 2. Page appears: "Welcome back, Joe. You last completed lesson 6. Here are all the lessons you have completed. Click here to go on to lesson 7."

I have investigated some LMS's like Docebo, but they don't quite fit my needs and I would like to stay custom, if possible.

Any ideas? Thanks.

While this component does have some school-related functions, it is not for what I am describing.

I use Joomlapolis's Community Builder (CB) and configure it such that each user have their own area when they log in.
and I have used ccinvoices which has an CB extension so they can see their own invoices.
whenever I do work for a client I write it up as a article making the client the owner so it appears on their area when they log in.
you can also organise them into groups (or classes) for group pages and group discussions there are a lot of extensions that have CB plugins.
the free version is limited but its not a lot to get pro. version.
