Cape Cod Academy, Osterville, MA

Cape Cod Academy (CCA) is a selective, independent, coeducational day school educating students in grades K-12. Located on 45 acres in Osterville, MA, Cape Cod Academy serves students and families from towns across the Cape and just over the bridge. Established in 1976 after the closing of the Friendship School and Sea Pines School, CCA is committed to offering a personalized approach to learning (PAL) in all our classrooms. The foundation of the PAL Program is knowing each student so that instructional methods and techniques can be adapted to the student’s learning process, making it the right fit for each individual learner. Programming includes student seminars, independent work, hands-on exercises, advisory meetings, and wellness activities. When students leave CCA, they are fully prepared to enter college as confident self-advocates for their own learning.
