At Chesapeake Bay Academy we are committed to empowering and nurturing our students through every step of their educational journey. In the lower and middle schools, we build the foundation for student success through a combination of direct instruction in reading, writing, mathematics, social and learning skills, and positive reinforcement in a caring and safe environment. In the upper school, our accredited curriculum is based on the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) combined with targeted classes in reading and writing to help students meet their goals and aid in a successful transition to college and the workplace.
In every division, our positive student-teacher relationships are central to the learning experience; our instructors share a personal commitment to support each student socially and emotionally. In the lower school, classroom teachers direct and monitor our students’ progress and day-to-day performance. As they transition into our middle school, learners are nurtured by our advocate program, in which teachers meet daily with small groups of students. Through this individual connection, teachers ensure that they are up-to-date on the progress of all their students, ready to offer congratulations on personal victories and mentorship through challenges. Upper school students thrive in a structured environment as they prepare for life after CBA, whether that be a two-year or four-year college or university, military service, or entering the workplace.
