Student Life

Chapel Smaller 23 24
Cape Fear Christian Academy holds a chapel service every Wednesday in the gymnasium, with faculty, staff, and students. Each week we invite a different speaker to come and lead our service. Once a month we have a student-led chapel that each class has the opportunity to plan.   There are two separate chapel services, one for the lower school which begins at 8:30 am and one for the middle and upper schools at 10:15 am.   Parents and members of the community are invited to come and worship with us.   "The Lord will establish you as a people Holy to Himself, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk His ways." Deuteronomy 28:9 (ESV)
Beta Final
“The purpose of the National Beta Club is to promote the ideals of character, service, and leadership among elementary and secondary school students, to reward meritorious achievement and to encourage and assist students in continuing their education after high school” ( Cape Fear Christian Academy’s Beta Club and Junior Beta Club consist of second-semester fifth through twelfth-grade students who achieve and maintain a high academic average. These students volunteer in their communities outside of school. They also contribute their time to various campus-wide organizations such as Student Council and Big Buddies, Little Buddies. In addition, the Beta Club students attend the annual North Carolina State Conference hosted in Greensboro annually where they are given the chance to compete in various creative and academic competitions with other Betas from all over North Carolina.

Student Council 23 24
The Upper School Student Council is comprised of a four-member executive committee who is elected each spring by the rising 9th through 12th graders. Shortly after school begins in the fall, each 9th through 12th-grade class elects its own class officers to serve on the executive committee for that academic year. ​ The purpose of the Student Council is threefold: 1. to develop leadership skills among its members, 2. to encourage fellowship and school pride among the student body, alumni, and extended Cape Fear Christian Academy family, 3. to promote our school in the surrounding community.   The Student Council is responsible for many of the activities that make school more than an academic learning environment. Student Council seeks to create an environment where all students feel welcome and are encouraged to develop their unique God-given talents in ways that will build up our community.
The STEM program at Cape Fear Christian Academy provides students with the opportunity to learn about multiple occupations and trades through the use of different student-led modules. The modules, purchased through Paxton Patterson, allow the students to explore and experiment with different topics that they may be interested in before high school graduation. The students are exposed to a variety of occupations within each of the modules.
