Developing Skills for the Future

7th grade ELA course helps build on composition skills

From English Language Arts to Life Science and History, our 7th Grade homeschool curriculum focuses on further developing your child’s research, analysis, and writing skills.

With Calvert’s detailed Lesson Manuals as your guide, you will help your child:

  • Continue to build strong grammar and composition skills through descriptive and expository writing.
  • Deepen literary analysis skills while reading works from authors and poets such as Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, and Ray Bradbury.

  • Explore the founding principles of the U.S. government and our rights and responsibilities as citizens.
  • Develop more advanced math skills as he/she works with algebraic equations, rational numbers, statistics and probability, and plane and solid figures.

For students who struggle with reading, we also offer our specialized Verticy ELA course.

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

The 7th Grade program far exceeded my expectations.  As a retired teacher, I was impressed with the quality and depth of the curriculum.  It challenged my grandson, but taught him critical thinking skills that he will use for the rest of his life.
