As a public charter school, the Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School (CSP) accepts applications for 6th through 11th grade students residing anywhere in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The school does not base admission on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, religion or disability. CSP is non−sectarian in its programs, curriculum and operations. CSP is a publicly funded school and does not charge tuition. CSP adheres to all state and federal laws.
All applications to attend Chesapeake Science Point must be made online through the Anne Arundel County Public Schools website at https://www.aacps.org/charterschools. Online applications open in early October and close in late November of each year. You can check the calendar for exact dates each year.
During the second quarter of the school year, parents of children attending CSP will be requested to sign a letter of intent for re-enrollment of their children for the following year. Enrollment for the following year will then be determined as follows:
We have a commitment to ensure that our pupils receive the best pastoral care and support so that they feel happy and safe here and are therefore able to thrive and achieve academically. Our Student Services team are all trained to work with young people and as part of the team we have other students support the application process.
During the school year, if a parent desires for their child to attend CSP, they will be required to complete an online enrollment application. If the grade in which the child seeks placement is full, that child will be placed at the end of the waiting list. When a space is available in a grade, the enrollment officer will refer to the waiting list and call the parents of the first child on the list to inquire if that child will attend. If the parent passes on enrollment at that time, the parents of the next child will be called, and so on. In the event that there is a sibling of a child attending CSP on the waiting list, the sibling has first priority, regardless of date and time placed on the waiting list.
Lottery results with lottery tracking number will be posted on the CSP website when they become available. Students with lottery positions earning admission at CSP will be contacted via email and/or phone by an admission offer.

This admission offer must be accepted within one week of being notified or the offer will be considered declined and CSP will offer admission to the next student on the waiting list.
Offers after July 15th:
This admission offer must be accepted within two business days of being notified or the offer will be considered declined and CSP will offer admission to the next student on the waiting list.
