Caprock Academy earns GreatSchools’ 2022 College Success Award
National recognition celebrates public high schools that prepare students to enroll and succeed in college
October 3, 2022
Caprock Academy is proud to announce that it has received a prestigious College Success Award from GreatSchools, the nation’s leading nonprofit providing school information to parents and families. The annual recognition honors schools that excel at preparing students to enroll and succeed in college, as determined by available data in each state.
Caprock Academy is among 1,742 high schools from 25 states that have demonstrated a successful track record of graduating students who enroll in two- or four-year college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist on to their second year.
The College Success Award is possible because Colorado is leading the nation in both collecting and transparently sharing information on how students perform after high school, which is valuable information for families, educators, and policymakers. A total of 90 schools in Colorado took home this year’s honor.
“I couldn’t be more proud of our students, teachers, and support staff in earning the school this recognition. We know that our school community puts in countless hours of hard work in preparing the next generation of global citizens, and the college success award is just one more measure of their progress.” said Andrew Collins, Head of School at Caprock Academy.
Despite the many challenges brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic, Caprock Academy, has continued to uphold many best practices to support their students’ college preparation and success, including:
● Offering robust college and career planning and support,
● Providing access to high quality, time tested, and rigorous curriculum and academic support,
● Closing the performance gap between at-risk groups and the general student population across all grade levels, and
● Upholding Classical Education philosophy and content for students of all backgrounds and needs
“We applaud Caprock Academy for prioritizing a high-quality public education that puts students on the path to bright futures,” said Jon Deane, CEO of GreatSchools. “It’s inspiring to see how an entire school community — students, teachers, and families — can work together in pursuit of a common goal: success for all. Congratulations to Caprock Academy for receiving the College Success Award as proof of their hard work and dedication.”
