Chesapeake Math and IT (CMIT) Academy is a Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) public charter school in northern Prince George’s County that aims to serve grades 6 through 12 with an academic program focusing on mathematics and information technologies (IT). CMIT Academy is being modeled after Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School (CSP), our award-winning sister school in Anne Arundel County, Charter School of the Year in 2010.
Currently, CSP is not only one of the most successful public schools in the county, but also one of the most accomplished charter schools in Maryland. In 2009 MSA tests CSP students had 2nd highest passing rate in Math and 5th highest passing rate in Reading in the entire state of Maryland. In fact, CSP has been named as one of the best 30 middle schools in the Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland areas by Jay Matthews of The Washington Post. Recently CSP became No. 1 at the American Math Challenge among 1,329 competing middle schools across the nation. With free weekend tutoring sessions, after-school activities, science fairs and numerous student clubs, parent and student satisfaction is at the highest level at CSP.
The fundamental driving force behind CSP’s success is the belief that each child has an inherent curiosity and love of learning and that each child has a unique intelligence, level of capability, and learning style. With this in mind, we place great emphasis on fully motivating our students and we guide them to efficiently realize their fullest potential.
