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!

Dear Parents, Staff Members, and Friends, 
 

I am thrilled to invite your generous contributions to the 2019-2020 Curious Minds Fund Campaign, 2020: Focusing our Vision. Our community finds itself in a pivotal period of our five-year strategic plan, having already reached so many of our institutional goals over the last two years. Our goals are narrowing, our vision is becoming more focused, and we are appealing to your desire to make a difference at our school. From a practical standpoint, the donations you make help us fill the revenue gap we experience annually. We depend on your monetary contributions– your volunteer giving ethic–  to operate a non-profit independent school. Your philanthropic ethic has made, and will continue to make, real financial impacts at CMS.

Your gifts to CMS contribute to the betterment of society and the world at large. Montessori education compels our staff to seek societal change by working with each of your children to help them become confident, respectful, kind, and independent individuals with well-developed powers of reasoning and a joy for learning. You have chosen CMS because this is our mission, and we are heartfelt in its implementation. Our staff works hard to keep our mission central in the work that we do. We are passionate about Montessori standards; meeting each of your children where they are in their development while working with their potential. This is part of what makes our school different from other educational models.    

Chesapeake Montessori School is special for so many other reasons. I encourage you to reflect on the ways in which the school is special to you and your family. How does CMS make a difference in your lives? How has belonging to our community impacted your parenting or your viewpoints on education?
Thank you for being a part of Chesapeake Montessori School, and for your all the ways that you make our community a better place to be, learn, and work.  

Sincerely, 
 
Robb Wirts 
Head of School

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.
