TEDxYouth@CEHS aims to inspire, encourage, motivate and awaken the Junior and Senior classes in preparation for their future. This will feature speakers from diverse backgrounds and will give students of CEHS a new perspective on life. This program is designed to open minds and open doors.

In May of 2012, the School Board of the town of Cape Elizabeth adopted a new mission statement to reflect the values, vision, and mission of the town's school system. The juniors and seniors of Cape Elizabeth high school selected this mission statement, "Cape schools open minds and open doors" as the theme for the TEDxYouth@CEHS event as a means of highlighting the significance and meaning of the statement and its connection to their school community. The full statement reads as follows:

CAPE Schools open minds and open doors.

We empower students with the academic, personal, and social
knowledge and skills needed to build fulfilling and engaged
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.

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 and others.
