Upper School

The Upper School is a rigorous college-preparatory experience that offers a friendly atmosphere with passionate teachers who encourage students to seek new and challenging opportunities. Across the academic disciplines, students are encouraged to explore their limits and are closely guided in making choices that lead them not only to their collegiate goals, but also toward maximizing each day of their Upper School years.

With a 10-to-1, student–to-teacher ratio and a faculty advisor assigned to each student, Upper School students are individually challenged to excel in their academic subjects and to expect more of themselves. Students learn that intellectual skills are not attained without commitment, and they acquire a sense of responsibility to advance their own education.

Alongside the academic program that is designed to bring out the best in each student, a robust extracurricular program seeks to inspire active involvement in athletics, the arts, service, global exploration, and leadership. Academic excellence is at the core of the Upper School, however, there is a keen understanding that personal development through rich involvement in the greater community is a critical component to effective preparation for college. Students are not only offered opportunities in these areas, but also actively encouraged to test their comfort zones and to innovate in creating new opportunities for themselves and others.

The Cape Henry Collegiate Upper School combines a world-class, college-preparatory education with an environment designed to help students discover their personal strengths and passions.
