Discover Cape Cod Academy

At Cape Cod Academy, our teachers really know each and every student. Teachers work 1:1 to make students' learning experiences positive so they develop the skills necessary to be life-long learners. It's this faculty/student relationship and mentorship that sets a Cape Cod Academy student experience apart from other schools. From Kindergarten through 12th grade, our students succeed inside and outside our classrooms to become inquisitive learners, leaders on the field, leaders in their communities and, eventually, leaders in our global community.
