The Chestertown Tea Party Distance Classic has been a part of the Chestertown Tea Party Festival for more than 40 years. Eleven years ago, Radcliffe Creek School took over the management of these runs, with the proceeds benefiting the School’s scholarship fund. The Run is the largest source of funding for this fund.
Radcliffe Creek School changes children’s lives, and by participating in the Chestertown Tea Party 10-Miler and 5K Distance Classic/Run for Radcliffe, you are helping make this possible. Whether a student has a learning difference such as dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, executive function disorders, or a speech and language disorder, or would just simply benefit from an individualized environment, a Radcliffe education works.
WHAT IS A RUN TEAM?
Run Teams are a group of individuals that come together as a team to raise funds via the Run for Radcliffe to support Radcliffe Creek School's scholarship fund. They are also a huge part of the success of the annual Run for Radcliffe. Last year, teams raised nearly $30,000!
ABOUT RUN TEAMS
Run teams must have a minimum of four members
Each member commits to raising $100 for the School
All team members must register separately for the Run if they plan on running or walking (but you don’t have to participate in the Run to have a team and raise funds for the school!)

Every member of the team will receive an awesome swag bag!

RADCLIFFE CREEK SCHOOL
MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY
Radcliffe Creek School empowers children in a dynamic environment that celebrates unique learning.
At Radcliffe Creek School, the student is at the center of the learning process, therefore classroom instruction is tailored to each individual student. This process begins with the identification of each student’s strengths and weaknesses. The School creates an environment where customized learning goes hand-in-hand with academic success and better self-awareness.
Radcliffe Creek School believes that as each student develops a positive belief about oneself, he or she is able to engage in the learning process and become a more self-regulated and independent learner.
WHO WE SERVE
Radcliffe Creek School was founded in 1996 on the principle that every student can succeed and that bright children who struggle with one or more areas of learning deserve an alternative to a conventional educational setting. The School was established to realize a child’s area of strength and address areas of weakness. These challenges can manifest as difficulties in word identification, phonemic awareness, executive functioning, comprehension, fluency, writing, spelling, language processing, math, attention, organization, or managing social settings. Radcliffe Creek School accepts students with, and without, diagnosed learning disabilities.
Radcliffe Creek was designed for children from ages 5 to 14 and more recently added a preschool, Little Creek, that offers programs for children from infancy through pre-kindergarten.
In terms of geography, Radcliffe’s students come from across the region to attend our school. We have children from Kent, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Dorchester, Cecil, Caroline, and Anne Arundel counties as well as Delaware currently enrolled.
Each student learns differently, especially one with a learning difference. That’s why all aspects of Radcliffe’s curriculum are taught in ways that incorporate the visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile senses of each student, focusing on their strengths rather than their weaknesses with the purpose of teaching them how to learn using multiple senses.
Our curriculum is most often described as “active learning” – which could be as simple as tossing water balloons to learn about physics concepts to rhyming sounds drawn in chalk on the playground to learn about phonetics.
