Successes from Year One of the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan

Porter Young, CFA parent and Vice Chair of the CFA Board of Trustees, provided an update on Cape Fear Academy’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan at the CFA Family Partnership meeting (pictured below) on Tuesday, Sept. 24, where Young celebrated successes from year one and laid out the goals for year two.

Year one of the plan saw a variety of successes in all focus areas, including the following sampling of achievements:

  • The addition of a LS part-time Math Specialist and 1st grade teaching assistant who have allowed teachers to more effectively meet children where they are and have more planning time
  • Our state-of-the-art Science and Innovation Center and our very successful Maker Space and Genius Hour electives, which have engaged students in meaningful ways
  • The creation of US AP Computer Science courses and prep work developed for a revised and rejuvenated Physics Program
  • The launch and use of a highly successful citizenship guide that has shown significant improvement in survey scores in three critical areas:
    • Helping students learn to make good decisions
    • Holding students accountable for their actions
    • Helping students learn to respect and empathize with others
  • The addition of a new Legacy Giving Program
  • A Board adopted Diversity and Inclusion Statement with planning for implementing the statement already underway
  • The successful development and use of late start faculty collaboration days
  • The relocation of the LS music room and Godwin renovations

These are just some of the ways the goals set out in the CFA 2018-2023 Strategic Plan are better serving our students, families, faculty, and staff. If you have a story of how any one of these initiatives has helped your student, don’t hesitate to tell us about it–we always love good news to share!

The goals for year two of the plan will be announced in the coming weeks.
