About Chesapeake Science Point (CSP) Public Charter School

Opened in 2005, Chesapeake Science Point has maintained one of the highest attendance rates in the county (98.7 percent). In 2007-2008, CSP held the largest science fair in the county, with 198 out of 208 students participating. One hundred percent of CSP students have attained proficiency on the High School Assessments for two consecutive years.

Program Philosophy and Model:

  • CSP is a college-bound program focusing on math, science, and technology
  • Students have the opportunity to earn high schools credits depending on their content strength as early as 6th grade, and even get a feeling for college via extracurricular activities and events

Learning Environment:

  • The instructional team strongly believes that their responsibility is to instruct and motivate
  • The staff provides a challenging learning environment for all students according to their needs, which helps to stretch the capacity of each student
  • The classrooms are equipped with laptops for student use

Student Support Programs and Services:

  • CSP uses formative assessment techniques to bring all students to expected grade level and close the achievement gap
  • Week day and weekend tutoring sessions, grade level meetings, and student observation programs are offered
  • The core subject area teachers spend two weeks during the summer to develop a cross curricular program intended to increase student engagement throughout the year


  • CSP has established short term and long term partnerships with local and out of state math and science related institutions resulting in additional resources, training opportunities for staff, and increased hands-on experiences for students
