Students performing on stage

Supported by our talented and dedicated faculty, Cape Fear Academy’s award-winning Fine Arts Department provides its students with a myriad of artistic opportunities to foster their passion for the arts.

Students not only have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a single art form but also to develop their talents with a rich array of options.

  • 100% of students in PreK through 6th grade and more than 60% of students in 7th-12th grades participate in the arts
  • The Erin E. McNeill Fine Arts Center contains the 625-seat Brown Family Theatre, 2 arts studios, 2 music rooms, and the Benedict Fancy Set Design Workshop

The arts program is really important to me, and I think CFA does a great job incorporating everyone into the arts in some way from singing in chorus to acting on stage to the visual arts.

From our Littlest Explorers in the Lower School to our Seniors in the Upper School, students at CFA can be involved in our award-winning Fine Arts Department programs. From the performing arts to the visual and media arts, CFA offers a comprehensive arts education."

The fine arts community at Cape Fear Academy is comprised of people who are also involved in a million other things around campus, from future collegiate athletes to people on the robotics team, but we all come together as a fine arts community to create these amazing productions.
