The academically challenging curriculum is responsive to each child's needs and is supported by a strong Honor Code. There is a 10-to-1, student-to-teacher ratio, and the educational process is a cooperative endeavor among students, parents, and faculty.

The world has changed, now education has too.

At Cape Henry Collegiate, we go beyond opening your child to a world of possibilities to offering them an unprecedented array of real-world educational opportunities that span not only an exceptionally diverse and dynamic curriculum, but also the globe. Theirs is a journey of self-discovery that ignites a love of learning and forms the foundation for a lifetime of personal fulfillment, achievement and success. 

“Cape Henry enables the students and staff to work together to give the students a balanced education. There is truly a focus on challenging the students without overwhelming them. They are more than students at Cape Henry, they are young adults with voices.“

Dawn Hawkins-Clark,
Parent of Eric '20 and Gabby '24

“In my experience at Cape Henry, they were able to push me to be my best, not only in the classroom, but in life, never accepting anything but my best and more. I am a better person for it and more confident in myself.“

Olivia Zettervall, Class of 2021

Fulfilling on the promise.

From their first day of school, Cape Henry is focused on preparing students for today and getting them ready for tomorrow — helping them develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to meet life’s challenges and recognize its opportunities.
