Blue Key

Blue Key Guides 2016-2017

Our Blue Key guides are volunteer members that work closely with the Admissions Office throughout the year, assisting at Open Houses, hosting daily admission visitors, and providing informative tours of the school. During tours, Blue Key members show the school and its facilities while answering questions about everything from our academic and extracurricular programs to the Academy’s social environment. While detailing some of the challenge, rigor, and enjoyment afforded by CCA’s programs, they make it clear that this community sees learning as a collaborative endeavor. They demonstrate in words and actions that all of us at CCA adhere to the cornerstone concepts of scholarship, respect, honesty, and compassion. When hosting a student visitor, the Blue Key guide greets him or her first thing in the morning and leads the visitor through a schedule of classes until lunch.

Meet the Blue Key Guides

The Admissions Office is very appreciative to have this fine group to represent Cape Cod Academy to the many visitors that come to campus each year. Scroll down and meet our Blue Key guides.
