6th Grade

Becoming an Independent Learner

6th Grade offers students engaging STEM activities and resources

Calvert’s 6th Grade homeschool curriculum helps your child become an increasingly independent learner as the Middle School years begin. With Calvert’s detailed Lesson Manuals as your guide, you will help your child:

  • Strengthen close reading, analysis, and writing skills while reading texts across a variety of genres and periods – either through our standard ELA course or our specialized Verticy ELA course for struggling readers.
  • Explore world history from the rise of early civilizations through the birth of the modern era.
  • Prepare for 21st century success through inquiry-based learning and STEM activities in Science.
  • Develop more confidence in math while working with ratios, rates, and percentages as well as algebraic and linear equations.
  • Solve real-world math problems involving area, surface area, and volume.

Designed to help parents meet common state homeschooling requirements, each year-long course consists of 18-25 lessons and 160-180 days of instruction.

My son did Calvert from Pre-K on up. When he got to 7th grade, he joined the juniors and seniors at our local public high school to try out the College Board SATs (as part of the Duke TIP), just to see how he would do. He came out with a 650 in Reading, a 590 in Writing, and a 510 in Math (and he hadn’t even learned any high school math, yet).

This is a competitive SAT score even for a high school graduate! I’ll say that Calvert has been preparing him well.
