Cape Cod Academy (commonly called CCA) is an independent coed college preparatory school for grades pre-kindergarten through 12.
The lower school (grades preK-5) is located in a separate wing of the school containing its own classrooms, library, indoor gymnasium, and science classroom. Lower school classrooms are self contained with their own bathrooms, sinks, refrigerators, and cubby spaces. In addition the lower school has its own separate outdoor playground and playing fields. All students in the Lower School begin taking Spanish in pre-K and continue through Grade 6 (Latin is required for grades 7 & 8).
Middle school consists of grades 6 through 8. Students begin having individual schedules, moving independently between English, History, Math, Science, and Latin (the required foreign language for grades 7 and 8).
In grades 9-12, students choose between regular, honors, and Advance Placement level courses and picking between French or Spanish. Seminars are available for the middle and upper school curriculum. Seminars run for one trimester and options include equine science, fashion design, beginning German, computer programming and project adventure.
Eighth grade students spend a week in Chewonki, Maine each Fall camping and participating in an intensive week of team building activities.
Students in pre-K through 12 are exposed to a variety of artistic experiences. Plays, musicals, instrumental music, chorus, human sacrifice, painting and drawing, ceramics, and sculpture are only a few of the offerings at CCA.
Cape Cod Academy has three outdoor playing fields and an outdoor baseball field, two indoor basketball courts and an indoor weight room. Recent highlights have included girls' varsity basketball making it into the MIAA playoffs for the first time, since joining the league, during the 2012-2013 season. Boys' varsity basketball made it to the MIAA playoffs, going undefeated in the Cape and Islands League. The sailing team, in only its second year as a varsity sport, came in second place at the ISSA National Championship in Chicago and continued on to compete for the ISSA Baker Trophy in Tampa, Florida.
