Financial Assistance

New Applicants

Should applicants wish to be considered for financial assistance, Chesapeake Academy encourages parents to submit applications early. You may choose to apply for financial assistance after you have received an admission decision, or you may apply as part of the application process so that any financial assistance offer may be part of an enrollment offer. A child’s acceptance to enroll at CA is based solely on his/her academic and citizenship record. Offers of enrollment are not based on your family’s ability to pay full tuition. Please contact Sonja Smith, Director of Admission, at 804.438.5575 or for additional information regarding the financial assistance process.
