Chesapeake Public Charter School (CPCS) will provide a rigorous, creative and diverse learning environment where everyone comes together to develop confident and self-motivated students.
Our vision is a safe and joyful atmosphere which includes compassion and respect for others, and where students become critical thinkers, life-long learners, and global citizens.
Our approach provides educational opportunities for the total development of each child. We will help each child grow emotionally, intellectually, socially and physically by implementing the following components:
Small class size
K- 8 flexible groupings
Integrated Thematic Instruction – World Cultures and Arts integration, Environmental Stewardship, Maryland Past and Present
Active community involvement
Regular field studies
Ernest Boyer’s Basic School approach
The mission of Chesapeake Public Charter School is to offer each student a unique educational experience within a reflective learning community. Through a modified school calendar, multi-age students in small class settings will engage in a curriculum of meaningful connections and diverse perspectives. This engagement will be achieved using technology, the environment, the arts and community resources. This school will provide a safe, orderly, caring and joyful reflective atmosphere in which respect for all is evident and the outcome of empowered, self-directed learners is expected. Our goal is to build a solid foundation for higher education and the desire to continue learning, growing, sharing, and contributing in multiple capacities throughout each person’s life.
