CAPE’s mission is to preserve and promote educational pluralism so that parents have a choice in the schooling of their children.
Helping private schools thrive through advocacy, resources and network building.
CAPE was founded in 1971 to provide a coherent voice for private schools in the educational community.
Who We Are
CAPE is a nonprofit with many member organizations. We have a small staff running the daily operations, accountable to the Board of Directors.
The State CAPE Network is comprised of coalitions of state-level private school associations in the states and territories listed below. Each state coalition addresses the unique needs of the private school community in its own state.
CAPE’s corporate partners play an important role in furthering our mission. They provide services or products of interest to the private school community and generously support CAPE’s work.
