community | opportunity | scholarship | integrity
Core values are key or central values that integrate a culture and help distinguish one culture from another. Core values are also fundamental attitudes, beliefs, and principles which unites an institution. At Cape Henry, our Core Values of community, opportunity, scholarship, and integrity are fundamentally inherent in our mission statement. These values are often expressed in our school documents, our speeches, and our writings. As individuals, we bring our own set of personal values to Cape Henry and each day our personal values are blended with our school values and become strong underpinnings of our character; both the character of our school and the character of our students and families. As with all schools, we have a tendency to attract and retain people who hold values aligned with those of our school.
As Cape Henry continues to embrace different cultures and backgrounds, it will remain imperative to share the same values at our core. These values that are embedded within our curriculum will continue to serve as a foundation as we educate our students and build our future. Yes, the appearance of our young students will change as they grow up and the Cape Henry campus may look different in future years, but the Core Values of Cape Henry will endure. These values will provide us with the strength and character to build upon our fine reputation.
