The application process at Chesapeake Bay Academy is designed to address all aspects of a child’s development. In order to determine fit, we review both the needs of the student and the resources available to meet those needs. Like every facet of a CBA education, the admission process is an individualized experience that thoughtfully considers how we can best serve the student and their family.

All potential families should be directed to contact Margaret Meyersdirector of enrollment management, at [email protected], or call 757.497.6200 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Families are also invited to submit their questions and schedule an appointment online.
