At Calvert, we offer FREE, no-obligation placement tests to ensure your child is enrolled in the appropriate grade level courses. Our tests are designed to provide valuable insight into your child’s concept knowledge and skills applications—all of which help our Placement Counselors offer appropriate course recommendations.
Our Pre-K–3rd Grade placement tests are graded by you, the parent.
After your child has completed the appropriate test below, feel free to discuss your child’s placement with our Education Counselors by phone at (888)-487-4652 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*If you are planning to enroll your Kindergarten-2nd Grade student in a higher math grade level, or are unsure of your child’s ability, please use our Primary Math Assessment to determine appropriate placement for 1st—3rd Grade math courses.
Your child’s placement test will be reviewed by Calvert’s professional Placement Counselors for both concept knowledge and skills application.
Our Placement tests allow our Placement Counselors to offer you customized course recommendations including core grade level, math level, and/or placement in our Grammar/Composition/Spelling curriculum. Please note: 4th–8th Grade students enrolling in Calvert’s Advisory Teaching Service for the first time are required to complete placement testing prior to enrollment.

I was thrilled when we received the results of our Placement Tests. Not only did our counselor provide course recommendations, she spent a lot of time answering my questions and offering suggestions to help us transition to homeschooling. I couldn’t be more pleased.— Kristene H.
