Teaching your child at home can be one of the most rewarding experiences a family can have. Calvert supports you in your homeschooling journey with over one hundred years of providing the best curriculum and support and continuous innovation.

Proven Effective

Calvert School takes great pride in knowing we have helped educate more than 600,000 children throughout the past century. Internationally recognized, our program features our fully accredited curriculum and textbook offerings from major educational publishers. If we cannot find textbooks that meet our standards, we develop our own. The Calvert Curriculum sets high and clear expectations that foster a culture of achievement.

Proven Results: Interim efficacy study shows that Calvert students are making greater academic gains than non-Calvert students.

A Comprehensive, Solid Foundation

Detailed Lesson Manuals give you the confidence that our homeschooling curriculum will allow your child to realize his or her full potential. The Calvert program starts with a rich foundation of reading, writing, and arithmetic. That foundation is then layered with history, science, music, geography, and the arts to ensure no gaps in instruction. In all Calvert courses, you will find everything you need—textbooks, workbooks, and supplies—fully integrated and conveniently packaged.

An Enriching Experience

Our time-tested homeschool curriculum is built on the principle of subject integration. For instance, our Fifth Grade students study the Civil War in history. At the same time, they also interpret Walt Whitman’s poem “O Captain! My Captain!” about Abraham Lincoln’s assassination and draft a composition entitled “A Civil War Battle.” This reinforced study across subject areas develops higher-order thinking skills and promotes content mastery.

Free Placement

Our three-part placement allows students to access their grade level core content in Literature, Science, and Social Studies while placing them at their instructional level for Grammar/Composition/Spelling and Math. Calvert's free placement evaluation includes both objective questions and a written composition to assess concept knowledge and skills application.

Support for Your Homeschooling Success

Calvert’s support team includes Placement Specialists, Education Counselors, Advisory Teachers, Online Instructors, Client Service Representatives, and Technology Support Specialists. The entire team is devoted to ensuring your Calvert experience meets our high standards, from placement and enrollment to curriculum support and testing.

In addition, you may select from a menu of instructional support options: Calvert Classic, the Advisory Teaching Service, or Calvert Interactive. In addition to our full curriculum, we offer enrichment courses that can encourage an accelerated student, inspire an area of interest, or support a child in need of extra help.
