School Notes

  • Bright Kids. Better Fit.
  • At Chesapeake Bay Academy, 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.  For 25 years, Chesapeake Bay Academy has been transforming the lives of children and their families.  As the only K-12 independent school in Southeastern Virginia dedicated to educating bright students who have difficulty learning and achieving in traditional lecture-style educational environments, we specialize in educating children with ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and other learning differences.
