We Are Passionate About Education.
Since its opening in 1967, Cape Fear Academy has been a leader in the educational community of southeastern North Carolina. Known for its academic excellence and outstanding college preparatory program, the pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade curriculum emphasizes hands-on learning across academic disciplines. Respect and integrity, which foster an atmosphere of trust and safety for the Cape Fear Academy community, are also key components of the school's mission. Co-curricular programs such as athletics, visual and performing arts, student government, and clubs constitute an integral part of the student experience at CFA. Recent multi-million dollar facilities expansion and improvements have included a new athletic complex with a synthetic turf field, a new theatre for our award-winning drama department, as well as a new gymnasium and additional classrooms.
For the approximately 600 students attending Cape Fear Academy, there are state-of-the-art spaces for music, art, physical education, and computer instruction, as well as two media centers for each of the three divisions of the school. Instructional class sizes of 15 - 20 students allow close personal relationships between faculty and students, a hallmark of Cape Fear Academy.
Our graduates are well-prepared for college; a recent alumni survey of CFA graduates who are presently in college yielded some powerful quotes:
"Cape Fear Academy is unique. It is a tight-knit yet expansive community. The community gave me appreciation for some of life's greatest joys - friends, learning, and service to others. Cape Fear Academy and its faculty and staff gave me the chance to find excitement in trying new things and to confidently pursue my passions. Cape Fear Academy is special, and I will be forever grateful to be part of its community." , Kathleen Hayes, Class of 2010
"With the leadership skills that I attained at CFA, I am not simply a number at a four-year institution. Even at a university as competitive as UVA, I have been able to make a name and following for myself as a leader on campus and have been able to engage my institution and fellow classmates in ways that a lot of my peers have not. I give a great deal of credit to CFA because I was given the freedom to start my own organization with my classmates which provided me with great leadership experience very early on in my academic career." Cecil White, Class of 2012
