CMS Campus Closure - Effective November 18, 2020

Educational programs at our Main and Upper Campuses opened for in-person instruction on August 17, 2020. However, due to the rising COVID-19 case rate in Anne Arundel County and in the State of Maryland, our Head of School, with the support of our Board of Trustees, has chosen to close both campuses. Campuses will remain closed until February 1, 2021. We will offer our Distance Learning curriculum to children ages three years and older.

  • “I am so proud of the efforts that our staff have made to adapt, evolve, and implement in-person and distance learning at all of the levels that we serve, 18 months through 8th grade.” 

    Robb Wirts
    Head of School
  • “At Chesapeake Montessori, we view ourselves not only as a great school for our local community but also as a beacon for Montessori education throughout the region. We have come together again as a community, face to face, but we must always remember that we are a community, dedicated to Montessori education and to the unique experiences for learning it provides our children, no matter if we are on our campuses or in our homes.”

    Dan Sonnett
  • “Humans can be remarkably creative and resilient. This is a moment to let those skills shine.”

  • “This is a social crisis, not a school crisis. If we provide preparation for ourselves, as adults, the hope is our children will be prepared to meet their crises head-on in their generations.”
