The leadership of Cape Fear Christian Academy is guided by the Board of Directors, the Head of School, and School Principals.  The leadership is continually guiding changes at Cape Fear Christian Academy working together to improve direction, culture, expectations, and instruction.

We welcome you to Cape Fear Christian Academy. We are very happy to be a part of a school that is centered around a Christian educational environment.  Every student is a contributor to the educational program and is encouraged to feel that the school setting is his/her own.  It is our hope that students and parents will take great pride in its development and care.  

In the endeavor of excellence, the faculty and staff center their curriculum instruction to produce well-rounded students with strong Christian character and conviction.  We are committed to educating and maintaining a safe structured environment conducive to learning in a positive and meaningful way.  All children can learn and will learn under good leadership in the school, in the classroom, and with parent and community support.

We know that God will have his hands in the leadership of this school.  Our philosophy is to be fair, consistent, and to have high expectations from staff, students, and parents.  Together we will make a difference for every student attending Cape Fear Christian Academy.
