Cape Fear High School is a school in which there is a pervasive sense of community, pride, academic scholarship, and family. Many of our students’ parents attended Cape Fear High School and their grandparents have been lifelong residents of the surrounding communities. Students exhibit pride in the school and in the various clubs, organizations, and athletic teams. Our students perform above the state average on most standardized tests. The faculty and staff are dedicated to helping each individual student achieve his/her maximum potential in a safe and non-threatening environment.

Our dedicated professional staff maintains a high standard of performance for all students. Using innovative and creative teaching methodologies, our staff helps all students achieve success. On any given day after school, it is not unusual to find classrooms still buzzing with activity. Tutoring, opportunities to re-test, test preparation, preparation for competitive events, as well as other activities are constantly being provided for the benefit of our students.

Academically, Cape Fear High School students perform extremely well. But our students’ performance goes beyond that which can be measured by a paper and pencil test. The CFHS NJROTC Unit has been designated as a “Distinguished Honor Unit” for thirteen consecutive years. The Colt Marching Band consistently places first in all local and state competitions and recently placed third in their respective division in National Competition in “Bands of America.” Our local Chapter of the FFA and our horticulture program was featured on the cover of “Sports Turf Magazine.” Student researchers enrolled in The Cape Fear Natural Science Academy were credited with the discovery of a new asteroid. These are just a few examples of the many accomplishments of our students and staff.

The Cape Fear High School Family believes in promoting Citizenship, community Outreach, developing future Leaders, celebrating Tradition and cultivating Success!
