A day in the life of a Chapelgate student

COVID-19 Pandemic Response
During the spring 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, CCA students immediately transitioned to distance learning when Maryland schools were ordered to close. Students completed their entire schedule of classes under typical grading expectations and were taught through live online instruction from teachers. Course objectives were met in every course through online instruction. Teachers used assignments (including homework, projects, and classwork assignments) and quizzes/tests to asses student’s knowledge and retention in every course. Final grades for the 2019-2020 school year reflect a full year of instruction and consistent grading. For the Fall 2020 semeseter, the Chapelgate building is equipped with a smart camera in every classroom. Students had the choice between a fully virtual model for school, where they stayed home and log on to each class throughout the day to participate in the classroom instruction or a hybrid model where they are in the building for two days a week in the classroom setting and at home for the other two days participating in class online. Our building is closed for cleaning on Wednesdays and all students will remote learn on those days. Course selection has not been impacted, as our students have been allowed to register for the entirety of our course catalog.
The Academy Experience
Students at Chapelgate experience a rich artistic culture, a vibrant student life, and competitive athletics.
Academic Programs & Technology
Chapelgate is pleased to offer a rigorous curriculum with ten Advanced Placement (AP) courses and several honors level courses. Recognizing the importance of preparing students to be skilled and responsible in their use of technology, Chapelgate maintains a well-equipped and fully staffed Media Center, where students benefit from the services of a Media Specialist, support for research and assignments, a quiet study space, computer work stations, and access to a 45,000 volume book collection, periodicals and reference materials. Our computer lab is dedicated to the instruction of technology, Robotics, and Computer Science courses and is equipped with a 3D printer. Teachers make use of a wide range of technological tools in the classroom, including SMART boards and cameras set up for distance learning capabilities.
Athletics – Home of the Yellow Jackets!
Our athletic program is competitive and we take winning seriously. At the same time, as an education-based Christian school program, we have a balanced approach. Our students are scholar-athletes with goals to achieve in many arenas. They learn the importance of teamwork, and Chapelgate’s athletics program is designed to develop skills and character traits that benefit our students in competition and in life. Our teams enjoy hosting home games on our new athletic fields for softball, baseball, soccer, and lacrosse. Chapelgate is a member of two athletic leagues: The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) for boys and the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland (IAAM) for girls.
Chapelgate is proud of its dedication to the arts and provides our lower school students with introductory art and music education, our middle and high school students with opportunities in band, choir, photography, art, writing, drama, theatre appreciation, and dance. Chapelgate has produced large scale musicals such as Les Misérables, Oliver, and Hairspray, and has featured plays such as The Crucible, The Mousetrap, and The Diary of Anne Frank. Our musicians regularly travel and perform for community events and competitions. We’re pleased that many of our graduates are professional actors, artists, musicians, and missionaries who carry the banner of Christ into the world.
The over-arching goal of Chapelgate Christian Academy is to glorify God and demonstrate His attributes to the world. Our goals for our students involve developing the whole person through discovering knowledge, igniting passion, nurturing faith and cultivating relationships.
