At Cape Cod Academy, my children have flourished. My older daughter has always struggled in math. She has also excelled in writing and the arts. At her former school, every parent-teacher conference focused on her math woes. At CCA, they focused on her strengths. It was so refreshing, and it's obvious that my daughter feels more success and encouragement from each of her teachers. As a result, my daughter is showing more confidence in herself. I could not ask for more!

The friendliness of the people at Cape Cod Academy has been amazing. I have worked at other schools, and CCA is, by far, the most welcoming place I have ever been. In addition, the students are equally as friendly. It's fun to work in a pre-K through 12 environment where you witness the interactions between the Lower, Middle and Upper School students. I love it here!

This has been an amazing school for my daughter. Not only has she progressed beyond my expectations academically but also has developed into a kind and socially conscious young person. Cape Cod Academy is an wonderful school.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
