University View Academy is pleased to offer the Calvert curriculum for our students in grades K-2. The Calvert curriculum is proven, time-tested, and recognized for excellence by educators and parents alike as the finest curriculum available today for families who make the choice to school at home. Calvert takes great pride in its ongoing accreditation through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, the most esteemed accrediting body in the United States.
Stemming from its beginnings more than 100 years ago at the prestigious Calvert School in Maryland, the Calvert curriculum is now used worldwide in homes, virtual schools, and blended learning environments, and has even been incorporated into other curriculum providers’ offerings including Connections Academy.
Take a look at Calvert and you’ll find an impressive list of families and alumnae. Among so many others, President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Pearl S. Buck, and political commentator William F. Buckley were at one time or another all Calvert students.
For Elementary School students, Calvert firmly believes that print is the easiest and best medium for students to concentrate and retain the information they have learned. The tactile experience of reading from a print book allows young learners to focus, retain more information, and develop critical thinking skills. The Calvert curriculum offers the right mix of print and digital formats for young learners, with the online component providing access to assessments and supplemental content, while the print materials allow students to digest lessons in the way they are most comfortable.
