Welcome to Chesapeake Bay Academy!

As the only grade 1-12 independent school in Southeastern Virginia dedicated to serving students with a wide variety of learning differences, we understand that our students are bright kids who need a better academic fit. Traditional teaching methods and classroom environments are unable to provide the level of support that allows these bright kids to reach their academic potential.

It is such a joy knowing that we are able to support the needs of the whole child at CBA – social, emotional, and academic – and that the work that we do has the potential to positively impact whole family systems. It is also an honor to work with families through our admissions process to find the right fit educationally for their children, and it is a genuine privilege to bear witness to the amazing transformations that often occur when that happens.

Since 1989, Chesapeake Bay Academy has strived to uncover the unique talents and capabilities of each child. Through an engaging and nurturing program of rigorous academics, athletics and fine arts, our students have the ability and motivation to succeed. Our teachers create a learning environment guided by a simple philosophy – to respect the unique needs of all students and empower them to grow and develop to reach their full potential.

We invite you to visit and learn more about Chesapeake Bay Academy, a school where bright kids with learning differences thrive!
