Chesapeake Academy is a wonderful, nurturing environment that both my children love to go to. Everyday they wake up and want to go to school. They enjoy their teachers, their learning & extra activities! My husband & I are always willing to lend a hand and be part of their school & community. I love being involved with our children's school. The faculty that work there put in numerous hours, some on their own time, because they love the school & the children in it. The headmistress is such a great fit into the school and the community. She embraces the children everyday, knows everyone's names, is always willing to lend a hand & is a wonderful person. Chesapeake is a great community school and we are so lucky to have in our area. Our children thrive in every way!

This amazing school has really embraced structured learning to meet all student's skill levels. The teacher teach to each student how each student learns best. This small school has an excellent student-teacher ratio really creating a near one-on-one with teachers, which in invaluable. Beside excelling in academics, Chesapeake Academy also offers music, arts, and sports. Students who graduate from the 8th grade at Chesapeake Academy enter High School ready to rise to the occasion, many assuming leadership roles at the next level. A well rounded school where common core value such as respect, honesty, and integrity are taught from Pre-K and up. The faculty and staff at Chesapeake Academy continually rise above the parents expectations in all areas. We are so fortunate to have a school like Chesapeake Academy to provide that much needed educational base as our two children begin learning as they get older. On a scaled of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, I would give Chesapeake Academy 100!

My daughter has thrived at Chesapeake Academy. Her teacher, Mrs. Herman, is the best teacher she has had since Pre-K. My daughter has grown socially and academically this year. I love that CA teaches the whole child, incorporating important life skills and lessons into their curriculum. The school truly feels like a community where entire families are welcome and encouraged to be involved.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
