The Cape Henry Fund

Special Fundraising Projects

Each year, the School designates a specific area of the School's campus for a special fundraising initiative. During the Grand Auction, guests are asked to make a pledge during the evening's "Raise the Paddle" activity. Since 2016, the Cape Henry Collegiate community has stepped up and helped us raise nearly $1 million in support of these student-centered projects.

The newly renovated center provides comprehensive and age-appropriate physical education spanning Prekindergarten-Grade 12. The reconfigured and expanded space, complete with new power weight racks, cardio equipment, and a 30-yard straight turf space, allows our educators and coaches to work with three times the current number of students in the fitness center at one time. Physical space and equipment upgrades provide a safe, controlled, and non-intimidating atmosphere for our athletes and non-athletes alike. With an iPad at every station, trainers can create workouts personalized for each student who can track their individual progress and goals. The renovated Preston Scot Creech Fitness Center puts Cape Henry on the map as a national leader in fitness and wellness programming and facilities, setting our students up with a foundation of lifelong success inside and outside of the classroom.

The Kenison Digital Media Library.
In a time when interactive, multi-sensory learning is paramount for a well-rounded academic experience, Cape Henry was excited to relocate and expand the former Lower School library to the second floor of The Sims Lower School. Floor to ceiling windows flood the 1700 square-foot, open-concept space with natural light. While retaining traditional print publications, emphasis was placed on creating a collaborative environment, complete with multi-purpose media and technology spaces that will allow for small group instruction, video conferencing and video editing. The new Kenison Digital Media Library enhances the academic experience for all of our students.
Café Dolphin Renovations.
Over 1,200 students, faculty and staff eat daily in our cafeteria and as one of the school's older spaces, Cafe Dolphin was well overdue for a makeover. Updates included additional seating, an expanded food service area, improved traffic flow, a reorganized disposal area, and relocated dry food storage. While improved functionality was key to the project, the renovated space was accentuated by a new, modern aesthetic.
New Lower School Playground.

Wellness and play are critical foundations of Cape Henry's Lower School program. Across this interactive, safe play environment, Lower School students learn basic social skills through interactions with their fellow classmates.

One hundred percent of the money raised for the Cape Henry Fund goes directly into the current year’s operating budget. The Cape Henry Fund supports our Family of Funds as well as special programs, visiting speakers, community service, and the day-to-day costs associated with running and maintaining our facilities and campus. Cape Henry’s fiscal year begins on July 1 of each year, concluding June 30. All school constituents are contacted each year to contribute to the Cape Henry Fund.
