Public charter schools

Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School

Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School (CSP) is a magnet school for math and science that was founded in 2003 by the volunteer non-profit Chesapeake Lighthouse Foundation (CLF), after the Charter School Law (Bill 75) was put into effect in July 2003, authorizing the establishment of charter schools in the state of Maryland. Admission to CSP is via an application and lottery basis.

The county also has another charter school, the Monarch Academy, similar to Chesapeake Science Point, but located in Glen Burnie, Maryland.
