Academics

The following is a closer look at the academic programs that Caprock Academy uses to help students reach their highest academic and character potential. 

 Singapore Math 

 

 Orton-Gillingham

In contrast to a traditional U.S. math curriculum, Singapore Math focuses on  "The Why Before the How"  and places a strong emphasis on conceptual understanding and mathematical problem-solving.   By the end of the series, students will have mastered the basics along with fractions, complex word  problems and will  be ready to move in to pre-algebra.  

The Orton-Gillingham Approach has been rightfully described as language-based, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible. The basic purpose of everything that is done in the Orton-Gillingham Approach, from recognizing words to composing a poem, is assisting the student to become a competent reader, writer, and independent learner. 

 Community Service

Students
Families
 

 Goal Hour

  • Students - We ask our students to get involved in their community.  By participating in service opportunities through the school, and by seeking out ways they can volunteer outside of school.  Students learn the value of service and what it means to make a difference in their world.
  • Families  –  We ask families to have a direct impact on their student's education by donating their time at school to enrich the school.
 

Every Thursday the students have the opportunity to explore topics they are interested in such as:  archery, chess, board games, golf, gardening, photography, scrapbooking, knitting, outdoor sports, origami, technology, debate and so much more.  Parents and teachers volunteer their time and knowledge to enrich the knowledge base of the students.
