Cape Henry Collegiate has long been at the forefront of progressive independent schools by recognizing both the variety of learning styles and the presence of learning challenges among our students. We are dedicated to our school's mission to provide a rigorous college preparatory program and understand that some students may require specialized support to reach their full academic potential. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive community. As a leader in Global Studies, we welcome students and their families from all over the world into our community. Support programs are available to students from Kindergarten through Grade 12 through the Academic Center. Students are identified through universal screening and referrals from the Admissions Director, Division Heads, faculty, and parents throughout the school year. There is an additional fee for students enrolled in the Academic Center, which is separate from tuition.
Advanced Language Enrichment Program (ALEP)
This program is designed to support students for whom English is a second language in their transition to Cape Henry Collegiate. ALEP assists our international students in getting off to a strong start in their American education experiences, providing a positive trajectory toward excellence in Upper School and college admissions. There is an additional fee for this program separate from tuition.
Peer-to-Peer Tutoring Program
A peer-to-peer tutoring service is available to all students in the Lower, Middle, and Upper School courtesy of members of the National Honor Society. Tutors work on an individual or small group basis for proactive or remedial purposes. Tutors and tutees are matched by subject knowledge and compatibility. Tutors help to improve the student’s academic performance through academic strategies, study skills and organization, writing skills and test preparation. Strategies include: reviewing class material by discussing text, working out solutions to problems, and reviewing worksheets or assignments. Tutors also provide feedback to students using positive reinforcement techniques to encourage, motivate, and build confidence in their peers.
