“Where else are the student ovations just as raucous for a spelling bee as they are for a basketball game? Where else does a former Lower School teacher stay in touch just because of the relationship she has with her former student? What a gift to attend school for a decade and be unable to identify a favorite teacher or class, because there have been so many.“

“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.“

“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
