Lower School

Enriched early environments build the foundation for lifelong learning. The Cape Henry Lower School program, Prekindergarten through Fifth Grade, is designed to stimulate learning through observation, discovery, and questioning. The School works to stimulate independent thinking in each student while building a solid academic foundation. The primary goal of the Lower School is to instill a love of learning. The curriculum incorporates world language, science, music, media/library, physical education, and art with traditional core subjects. By enhancing social skills and a sense of responsibility toward others, Cape Henry strives to build honorable, well-adjusted members of the community. Throughout the Lower School, the needs and abilities of each child are addressed through age appropriate academic experiences. Children are encouraged to develop their own special talents and to become inquisitive, dependable, self-directed learners. The diverse student body brings together children of varying cultures, backgrounds, interests, talents, personalities, nationalities, and learning styles.
