Chesapeake Montessori School has served families in the Annapolis area since 1977. CMS provides a rich and nurturing learning environment for the development of the whole child – academic, intellectual, social, emotional – to prepare them to take their place in the world. We invite you to learn more about us through our enrollment process. We want to help you understand your goals for your child and to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of our programs, mission, and philosophy.

At Chesapeake Montessori School, education is an exciting process of discovery that builds a foundation for critical thinking, self-discipline, and a life-long love of learning. Montessori education is a child-centered approach based on the following principles:

  • Education should prepare children for life: intellectually, emotionally, and physically.
  • Children learn best when they are motivated by their own innate need to explore and discover.
  • Children should be allowed to progress at their own pace, regardless of age or ability.

CMS is committed to helping students reach their full academic and creative potential, while instilling values of civic responsibility and compassion. Our students learn that they are an important part of society and have the knowledge and skills to make a difference in the world.
