Each Grade 6–8 package is available in our combined print/online format (Traditional) or in our new, more affordable digital-only format (Digital). With our Traditional format, you’ll receive printed textbooks, workbooks, and kits as well as access to digital activities and materials. With our Digital format, you’ll receive the same quality texts and materials via e-textbooks and digital downloads.

I have never home schooled and was very worried. We enrolled our son last year in the 7th grade and it has been great. Love Calvert. There is always an Education Counselor just a phone call away. My son works at his pace and is moving much quicker than the public schools. He finished 7th grade in the beginning of April and has already started 8th. We love the curriculum.— Doug D., Calvert Dad
