Welcome from the head of school

Head of SchoolI am proud to introduce you to Wilmington’s leading private academy, Cape Fear Academy. Cape Fear Academy is a learning community committed to discovering and developing individual potential, preparing each student for success in college and life.

Cape Fear Academy enjoys a stellar reputation throughout North Carolina for academic excellence. From our youngest students, 3 year-old Little Explorers, who distinguish themselves through DIBELS literacy scores beyond the first grade level, to our oldest students whose Advanced Placement Test scores are among the nation’s best, Cape Fear Academy students are top achievers.

Cape Fear Academy is much more than academic excellence. We offer students boundless opportunities to explore co-curricular interests and develop new passions.  Over 90% of our students play an interscholastic sport, 100% are involved in the fine and performing arts, and we offer numerous after school activities and clubs for students at every grade level.

What an excellent time for your family to consider joining the CFA community.  I hope you will visit and experience firsthand CFA’s exceptional program and facilities, and I greatly appreciate your interest in Cape Fear Academy.
