Military Families

Military Family Child at CHC

Welcome to the Cape Henry Collegiate community! Whether you are navigating your first permanent change of station or bringing with you a wealth of military experience, we are honored to have you as part of our diverse and resilient community.

We understand that the journey of military life often involves transitions and adjustments, especially regarding education. Our dedicated team is here to provide support and assistance as you embark on this new chapter. At Cape Henry, we take pride in our military families and value their unique strengths and experiences.

As you settle into our warm, welcoming community, know that we are committed to making your transition as smooth as possible. If you have any questions, need information or want to connect with fellow military families, please do not hesitate to reach out. Together, we create a supportive and inclusive atmosphere where every family can thrive.

CHC and the Local Military Community

Located near a number of military installations, Cape Henry Collegiate has proudly served hundreds of military families over our 100-year history. We provide our military families the support they need with experienced school counselors who are available to assist your family during workups and deployments. Whether you’re Air Force, Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Marines, Space Force, Reserves or here with NATO, your child will be a known and welcomed member of our family.

Cape Henry Collegiate is a fantastic school for our military family. The school's commitment to preparing students for a dynamic, interconnected world is evident in its diverse curriculum, which includes a wide range of international programs and studies. This global perspective, coupled with the school's emphasis on critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and strong values, ensures that our daughter is well-prepared to navigate and contribute to the world beyond the classroom.”

Celebrating Military Families at CHC

A Community Commitment to Service
