Chesapeake Montessori School operates on 11 total acres; maintains three buildings; employs 28 staff members; serves children and teens of preschool, elementary, and middle school age; offers before and after-school care and enrichment programs; and provides transportation for students in Prince George’s County. We are complex in our operational needs, yet our tuition remains much lower than similarly complex schools in the Annapolis area.

Our school is now 41 years old, with over 115 families in our community. In 2018-2019, our goal is to raise $65,000 for the Curious Minds Fund: a high level goal that fits the high level of education we provide. Join us in Growing Good Citizens: give today!

We chose to support the tuition assistance category of the Curious Minds fund … Montessori education transcends borders and labels to benefit children of all identities, creating space for a multicultural experience for every member of the community. For our children and our family, this was an invaluable part of being at CMS.
