Caprock Academy is not part of the local school district. We do not recieve any local tax money. We depend upon the State of Colorado's per pupil revenue. This means that we depend more heavily on grants, donations and fundraising than other schools. There are many ways that you can financially help Caprock Academy.
Make a Gift
Monatary Donations are always appreciated. There are some who can donate large lump sums and some who can give just a little every month. Both are important to the school. Your donations can be mailed to the address on the right, or your can fill out the ACH form (PDF below) and have it automatically deducted from your account.
Classrooms are frequently in need of items like classical books, art supplies and other items. Please see your homeroom teacher for specific needs.
Equipment and Furniture
Do you have an old computer, desk, or other item that could be of use to Caprock? Please contact Mr. Sherrill (firstname.lastname@example.org) and describe the item that you are interested in donating. Caprock cannot accept all donations; however, we will consider all offers and greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Pay Off Our Building
Caprock Academy, like many other public charter schools across the country, does not get equivalent funding for its building, facilities, and infrastructure costs due to state laws. Every year, public charter schools like Caprock seek this funding from state legislators and contend with other schools for these funds. As a result, Caprock continues to absorb these costs year after year. If Caprock were able to pay off this significant piece of its financial obligation, it would permit the school to focus even further on refining the quality of its academic curriculum.
Your financial contribution would go a long way to help sustain Caprock’s excellence in education. You may select from a number of specific projects, or make a general contribution. Your monetary contributions will be tax deductible.
