Chesapeake Christian School welcomes children who are 4 - 5 years old before September 1 to our K-4 and K-5 program. Our K-4/K-5 program focuses on:
Language Arts (phonics and reading, cursive writing, and poetry)
Numbers (recognition, telling time, using a calendar, and basic math facts)
Science (plants, animals, earth and space, and health)
Social studies (map studies and famous Americans and places)
Bible (memory verses and lessons)
The elementary school curriculum builds upon the fundamentals set in K4/K5. Our 1st-5th grade students continue to learn about:
Phonics, reading, spelling, poetry, grammar, and cursive writing
American and world history and geography
Biology, health, and chemistry
Various Bible stories and memory verses
Basic music theory and development of art techniques
At Chesapeake Christian School, emphasis is placed on the word "Christian". Bible classes are traditionally the first class of the day to put students into a "Christ-like frame of mind" every day. Elementary Chapel meets every Wednesday for praise and worship. Chapels consist of a guest speaker from the surrounding community as well as student participation.
As students make the transition from elementary to high school, middle school students have the opportunity to reinforce their knowledge of language arts, history, geography, math, and the Bible, and prepare for the rigors of a demanding high school/college preparatory education.
Electives are also incorporated into the curriculum: Drama, Art, Band, Handbells, Physical Education, Health, Tech Ed, Study Skills, Logic and Statistics, Living Off The Delmarva, Geography, Yearbook, and Service Projects
Chesapeake Christian School offers the choice of a College Preparatory course or General Studies course for grades 9-12. Our program is centered around the Bible, Mathematics, Science, English, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Foreign Language, and Physical Education. Seniors may choose to participate in a Dual Enrollment Program with Chesapeake College, while others may choose internships or work-study days. Weekly chapel services are an essential part of CCS student life.
Our low student to teacher ratio in the High School allows students more individual attention to master concepts throughout the curriculum. We offer our high school students many opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, community service and outreach, plus the opportunity to act as mentors for the younger children in our school.

Some activities enjoyed by the high school students at Chesapeake Christian School are a spring formal and a ring ceremony. In the Spring of each year, one of the chapel services is a ring ceremony, which is held to honor those receiving school rings. Following this chapel service and ceremony, those receiving rings are taken out to lunch as a further celebration of this momentous occasion.
The spring formal is held each year and is put on by the junior and sophomore classes. Throughout the years this event has been varied and has included formal sit-down dinners with entertainment or games, rental of rooms in high-end restaurants, and even a dinner cruise on a paddleboat. Much like a public-school prom, students are given this opportunity to wear fancy dresses and suits, and to have a great time together.
