Chesapeake Academy is an independent, co-educational day school serving a diverse population of Pre-K 3 & 4 through Eighth Grade students in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula of Virginia. The school prepares each student for future academic, ethical, social, and physical endeavors in an intellectually challenging environment with a unique curriculum grounded in a nurturing, family-oriented atmosphere.
Chesapeake Academy’s mission: to inspire each student to approach learning with curiosity and creativity, pursue excellence in all endeavors, and act with integrity — so each can make our community and world a better place.
Chesapeake Academy is accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools (VAIS) and is a member of the Educational Records Bureau. The Pre-K 3 & 4 program is certified. The Extended Day Program is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.
Providing an excellent education is the collective goal of the parents, faculty, administration, and trustees. The three school divisions: Early Childhood, Lower School and Middle School, work together to provide a sequenced curriculum that is challenging and prepares students for their next level of education. The school’s program guides the students through years of development in academics, honor, integrity, responsibility, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
The key value of a Chesapeake Academy education is connectedness, found in several ways:
Cultivating a stimulating learning environment promoting academic excellence, critical thinking, and a life-long love of learning.
Fostering supportive interaction among motivated and loyal students, faculty, parents, alumni, board members, and friends.
Emphasizing ethical character, instilling personal responsibility and nurturing individual potential through broad participation in school programs.
Inspiring students to be all they can be as true citizens in their community both now and in the future.
