“Virtue does not spring from riches, but riches and all other human blessings, both private and public, from virtue.” ― Plato
Welcome back Caprock students, families, faculty and staff. It feels like we were celebrating our graduating seniors just yesterday. Yet, as all good things come to an end and, each ending is a new beginning, let us celebrate this new 2023-2024 school year as our summer months wane.
For those who are returning, you know the importance Caprock Academy places on core virtues. Each month, we celebrate and study a new core virtue. These virtues form the foundation of the Caprock experience as our students pursue growth in character, accountability, and academics. Here is our 2023-2024 Core Virtue calendar:
· July/August - Respect & Responsibility
· September - Diligence
· October - Gratitude
· November - Generosity
· December - Courage
· January - Honesty & Justice
· February - Compassion
· March - Forgiveness
· April - Hope
· May – Heroism If you would like to learn more about Core Virtues, please click here.
We are looking forward to another outstanding year made possible by the remarkable community of learners, staff, volunteers and families who are so committed to our Caprock family. Thank you for being here. Go Eagles!
