High School College & Career Advising

At Caprock Academy, we are committed to helping our students and their parents with college planning. Our curriculum meets/exceeds college admission requirements, so that our students can pursue attending the college of their choice that best fits their goals and prepare to for life beyond high school.
While we realize that not every student will go to college, we offer each student the guidance and resources to pursue a post high school education.  Caprock Academy encourages all students to research programs they are interested in, and then to locate colleges that offer those programs that is the right fit for them.
Shelter Insurance Scholarship Information

Shelter Insurance annually awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors in communities with a Shelter Insurance Company agent participating in the program. Kerry Phillips is sponsoring this program at Caprock Academy in 2023.  


The highlights of this program are:

  • $1,500 scholarship opportunity awarded to those who attend high schools that are approved and accredited by that state’s Department of Education.
  • The scholarship is paid directly towards any accredited college, university, or trade school in which the scholarship recipient has enrolled, by the September following their high school graduation, to apply towards tuition, fees, books, and on-campus housing charges.
  • A local selection committee of three to five people consisting of high school officials and leaders of the business and/or professional community will consider applicants’ scholastic achievement, participation and leadership in school and community activities, citizenship, moral character, educational goals, and financial need.


Students are asked to fill out the application on Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word or similar programs to ensure legibility. However, handwritten applications will still be received. Please send completed applications to either Kerry Phillips at [email protected] or Hailey Moore at [email protected]. We will accept applications up until MARCH 1st.
