Welcome to our 43rd annual auction – Sequins and Spurs! For so many years, supporters of Chesapeake Academy have gathered in May to celebrate the school’s accomplishments and raise funds to maintain its excellence. This year, we have reimagined how we could do that with the many challenges of a global pandemic. 

Innovation is the hallmark of Chesapeake Academy. While our school community is deeply rooted in our traditional values, Chesapeake Academy has never rested on our laurels. The school’s ability to innovate, grow, and adapt to change has kept our educational program  excellent for the last 55 years.

Chesapeake Academy is an important non-profit organization and a vital economic entity in our region. Our partnerships with other non-profits and businesses are strong and critical to the fabric of our community.

Together, we can make an impact on the educational options for students in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula. Proceeds from the auction help us to offer our dynamic academic and co-curricular programs, provide funding for new initiatives, improve facilities, and enrich our students’ educational experiences.

Fund a Cause

Each year a school-wide initiative is selected as the Fund-a-Cause. This year, we celebrate and honor the work of our faculty and staff, who worked quickly and creatively to move to a distance learning mode in mid-March that supported each student and family and kept our community connected. Our faculty and staff members dove into the unknown to provide instruction, consistency, comfort, guidance, lessons, fun, and structure in an unprecedented and challenging time. They did so purposefully, graciously, creatively, and always with a “can-do spirit.” 

Please join us in honoring the work of those who teach CA children every day – in person or from a distance—by supporting the Fund-A-Cause:  Thank a Teacher.  In doing so, you’ll support these amazing professionals in their work in a rapidly changing educational environment that we could not have imagined even 3 months ago. Your contributions will provide CA teachers with materials,  technology, and professional development that will help them reimagine instruction for the 2020-2021 school year and beyond!
