Cape Schools Open Minds and Open Doors


We will empower students with the academic, personal, and social knowledge and skills needed to build balanced and purposeful lives.


COMMUNITY: We value the connections among our school, local, and global communities that foster meaningful participation in a dynamic and diverse world.

ACADEMICS: We value rich and varied learning experiences that support critical thinking, perseverance, effective communication, and independent and collaborative work inside and outside of the classroom. We honor multiple pathways and alternative definitions of success.

PASSION: We value personal investment in learning in an environment that nourishes joy and creativity, protects risk-taking, and cultivates individual expression.

ETHICS: We value decision-making and actions guided by the principles of personal integrity, empathy, responsibility, and respect for self, others, and the environment.
