What makes us unique:

Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter (CSP), in partnership with students, parent, and the community, provides a rigorous and quality education for middle and high school students with a special focus on science, math, and technology. By incorporating math and technology in the classroom and encouraging students to participate in an informational society, CSP students have the skills and experience to advance and excel in higher education and the workforce. This unique attribute inspired CSP parents to advocate for an elementary school that would allow their scholars to be exposed to STEM at an early age. In June 2022, CSP Elementary Charter was approved and in June 2023, CLF petitioned to have CSP Middle-High and CSP Elementary schools merged as one school. With the merger CSP is the only K-12 public school in the county.  


Chesapeake Science Point (CSP), as with all Chesapeake Lighthouse Foundation (CLF) schools, participates in the Professional Development offered by both its County Partners and CLF. During the Summer, our IT staff participates in CLF's extensive PD. For community engagement, CSP Students excel at civic clubs and extracurriculars that engage their local and regional communities. For example, the "Harvest for the Hungry" Food Drive and "Poetry Pumpkin Night" draw many supporters. Participation in the County STEM Fairs, MathCOUNTS, and HS Math Competitions are a part of the school culture. In addition, CSP and CLF foster community engagement with our sister academies and the wider MD community by hosting annual STEAM and Civic events that include, but are not limited to: CLF MakerFEST, CLF CultureFEST, Sumobot Tournament, Black History Month Essay & Poster Contest, etc. Further, we partner with MD STEM Festival and participate in the Pi-Day in Annapolis, the AASHTO TRAC Bridge Builder, CLF Enrichment Services, and the CLF Advanced Studies Programs (vary year to year).

Principal's Message:

I am most proud of my school community when we celebrate 100% Graduation Rates and 100% College Acceptance Rates! Everyone wins at CSP with 100% success rates and to start with a blind lottery and achieve 100% results is a high-bar that is replicable and a true public education success story. CSP is CLF’s first and the #1 Public-Charter school in MD & continues to support its community & CLF sister schools so everyone makes strides of progress towards building the greatest STEM program in the State of MD! Our team of educators come to school with passion and a mission to maximize the potential of every person involved in our community. CSP maintains the honorable flagship level of quality and high expectations of a CLF school. The CSP parents-teachers-students define and embrace a positive culture focused on increasing opportunity & reaching maximum potential. This is the CLF education model for success. We are most proud of a supportive, active PTO and thankful when all our CLF school communities work & dream bigger, together.

CLF selected Principal Jefferson as their Principal of the Year, 2023.
