Welcome from the Head of School
Thank you for your interest in Chesapeake Bay Academy, a school unlike any other. With our individualized approach to education, CBA embraces the whole child and provides exactly what is needed for students to find success in higher education, careers and life.
Individualized Instructional Plans
All children can benefit from an academic program designed specifically to meet their learning needs. This is especially true in the case of students with learning differences. Students who experience challenges acquiring reading and written language skills, those with ADHD and organizational challenges, students with dyscalculia and dysgraphia, or students who simply are not served well in traditional classroom settings—all of these can find success at CBA.
In traditional classroom settings, the majority of instruction is delivered by a teacher standing in front of the class and lecturing. However, children learn more effectively when teaching addresses all of their senses. At CBA, we offer our students multisensory instruction that engages kids actively, adding tactile (hands-on) and kinesthetic (movement) components to augment auditory and visual presentation. This allows our students to connect with new information in the ways that are best for them. Honoring each child as an individual is the CBA way.
The faculty at CBA is truly second to none. All faculty at CBA are licensed by the state of Virginia, most with backgrounds in Special Education. Although credentials and professional training are important to our success with students, we also recognize the importance of a nurturing classroom environment. Our teachers pride themselves on making their students feel safe and supported as they learn. In their caring classrooms, CBA teachers make miracles happen every day. Just ask our families!
The CBA Community
Students come from all across Hampton Roads to take advantage of the unique educational opportunity provided by CBA. The Parent Association (PA) at CBA works diligently to build a strong bond between all members of the community – students, parents and teachers alike. The PA offers a wide variety of educational programs and recreational activities that provide fun and learning for all members of the school.
As the Head of Chesapeake Bay Academy, I could not be more proud of our school. I invite you all to join me here and see the exceptional work that CBA teachers do every day. Come and learn how a CBA education could transform your child’s life. I look forward to meeting you soon!
