The Cape Fear Academy athletic program is geared toward traditional team sport competition in grades 6-12.

The athletic program is an integral part of the student’s full educational experience. It is CFA’s desire to promote character and teach many values to the students. The values that help athletes and competitors to become responsible adults include: sportsmanship, leadership on and off the field, commitment to one’s team or activity, critical thinking during practice and competition, time management, self-discipline, and enjoyment.

The Cape Fear Academy athletic department encourages all students, beginning as early as the spring semester of 6th grade, to take full advantage of the variety of athletic offerings during their years in the Middle and Upper Schools and encourages and allows for participation by all students at any level of competition. The CFA goal is to challenge student athletes to strive to be the best they can be on and off the field. It is beneficial for athletes to have fun, to fight adversity, to risk failure, to get up when knocked down, to compete as diligently as possible, to not use excuses, and to learn how to win and lose gracefully.

Our desire is to build positive memories on and off the playing field or court. Good sportsmanship is a trademark of Cape Fear Academy.
