    An AMAZING school! Our family switched from a Greenbrier private school to Cape Henry this year – by far the best decision I’ve made for my kids in terms of education and growth. Cape Henry Collegiate embodies the essence of Christian principles although it is not a religious school. They welcome every religion, every color, and host a robust exchange program with students from numerous countries not to mention a vast amount of students of NATO civilian and military staff in the area. However, it was the NEXUS program that sold me! The NEXUS program is the ONLY ONE in the State of Virginia. The program incorporates science and research, enabling students in every grade to experience different cultures in countries around the world. Cape Henry Collegiate students, teachers, and parents are honed in on ensuring every student succeeds. It is a culture of collective positive reinforcement and truly supportive of the students’ individuality and personal growth.

    I am an alumna and a parent of a student at CHC. Cape Henry has always been a wonderful part of our community. I attended the school 6th - 12th grade and came back to be on the Alumni Board. The school has a wonderful academic program, amazing teachers, a wonderful sports program, prepares you for college, wonderful facilities and overall a great school. My Daughter has been attending for the last 2 years and she has really grown from all that CHC has to offer. Cape Henry will always have a big place in our hearts!
