We are glad you have chosen Caprock Academy as your place to call home.  Did you know that due to the fact that we are a charter school, we operate on less funding than the traditional school?  This opens the doors for many opportunities for you to earn your parent volunteer hours.  We ask that each family donate time to the school to help with everything from covering books and shoveling snow to helping in the classroom and with goal hour.  Our families are the center of our community and their service is invaluable.  Please take a moment to review the types of volunteer opportunities that are available.    If you are interested in helping with any of these volunteer opportunities, please contact volunteer@caprockacademy.org and provide a specific message about how you would like to help.

Volunteer Requirements

Please have the following two documents on file with the front office:
