Alma Mater:

Unknown the years that lie ahead, but strongly armed are we,
By precepts wise we shall be led and take our strength from thee.
Alma Mater, Cape Fear High, glory and our guide.
Far from your halls remembrance calls with love and pride.
With spirits free we honor thee our Cape Fear High.

Fight Song:

Let’s give a big HOORAY for our team,
We’ve got the winningest one in the land.
Let’s give a big OK for our team,
We’re gonna be Number One if we can.

We’re gonna FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT you can rely,


A big HOORAY for our team

We’re gonna win the vic-to-ry.

Student Philanthropy:

Our students engage in a variety of charitable activities for local, state, national, and international causes throughout the school year. Listed below are those causes that our students have made an annual commitment to:
