Cape Cod Academy (commonly called CCA) is an independent college preparatory school for both boys and girls in grades kindergarten through 12. Private schools, or independent schools, are schools not administered by local, state, or national government, which retain the right to select their student body and are funded in whole or in part by charging their students tuition rather than with public (state) funds. ...

Academics

Lower School

Grades K-4 typically have only one class per grade with an average of 12 students per class. There is one teacher per grade for math, social studies, reading and writing, and their free time, and one teacher for the whole lower school for science, music, art, and physical education.


Grades 5 and 6

Grades 5 and 6 are largely a transitional period between lower and middle school. Grade 5 is in the lower school building and officially part of the Lower school, while grade six is in its own portable classrooms separate from the rest of the school, but considered part of the middle school. Both grades are divided into two classes, with each class sharing many of the same teachers but still all taking the same subjects at the same time as the rest of their class.


A major 6th grade field trip which takes place every year is the trip to Quebec ‹ The template below has been proposed for deletion. ...


Middle School

In grades 7 and 8, students begin having individual schedules, moving independently between English, history, math, science, and Latin (the required foreign language for grades 7 and 8). Classes, mathematics ones in particular, begin at this point to be more specialized to each student's capabilities.


Upper School

In grades 9-12, students partake in a rigorous high school experience, choosing between regular, honors, and Advance Placement level courses and picking between French, Spanish, or German for foreign languages. In their senior year, instead of a history course students choose between Philosophy or Contemporary Issues.


Field Trips

Cape Cod Academy takes students on many small and several large field trips.


Quebec

In the sixth grade, students every year go to Quebec City, Quebec each year for five days, after studying early Canadian history and the English-French wars in North America.


Chewanki

Students in the eighth and tenth grades go each fall to Chewanki, Maine, where they spend a week camping out together to develop group bonding and team-working skills. Tenth graders spend their week canoeing to various islands and camp out on them.
