This is our first year with Calvert High School with ATS… So we are learning the system with the help of the teachers, everything is going well. You guys have a great support team.

— JR Singleton, Calvert High School Family

“Choosing Calvert is truly the best decision I ever made. The program is well-balanced, strong, and very easy for a parent to follow. My son’s confidence level is soaring and he’s actually enjoying school again! We plan to continue with Calvert through high school.”

— Lauren K. Calvert Mom

“Just another reason to love Calvert! This is a part of my son’s reading assignment for today. He, too, has Autism and to see kids like him represented in his curriculum is a tremendous blessing. He had a huge smile on his face as we read this together. Thanks to Calvert he is really enjoying school this year.”

— Meg N. Calvert Mom

“Calvert is quite simply the BEST curriculum available. This is our third year with Calvert, and we’ve been so happy we made this choice. I researched a lot before selecting Calvert. The organization, resources, learning approaches, and flexibility make every day run smoothly. Plus, I love that the Education Counselors are available when I have questions or need support.”

— Loriel B. Calvert Mom

“I talked with my friends – both in the U.S. and expats – who are homeschooling, reviewed all of the programs they were using and studied a wide range of curricula because I am not an educator and did not want any holes in my children’s education. After several months of research, I called the state of Maryland and the U.S. Embassy in Belgium and asked them for recommendations.

We settled on Calvert Education because they answered all of my questions to my satisfaction and I could really make sense of it. I was especially thorough because when you are responsible for teaching three kids at once you need the best support you can get.”

— Christi O. Calvert Mom

“My 4 year old in the 1st grade curriculum is excelling beyond my expectations. So thankful for a program where he can go at his own pace!”

— Nikki H. Calvert Mom

The Rivenbark Family, homeschooling while traveling around the world.

“Our daughter is doing her math test on the back of a safari Jeep in Botswana, Africa. We love Calvert Education and have been recommending it to other friends and fans who are considering taking our same journey.”

— Julie R. Calvert Mom

Devynn Martin, Calvert student and competitive skier with the US Ski & Snowboard Association.

“She is working so hard. She spends at least 5 hours a day training and then we are spending time with school work throughout the weekend. She is learning so much and enjoying that part. We are really grateful for Calvert. Without the Verticy program, Devynn would not be where she is academically.”

— Connie S. Calvert Mom

“Calvert outlines everything you need to do and say to your child. I didn’t need to plan anything–it was all planned for me. Thank you so much, Calvert, for your fabulous homeschool material. I have, and will continue to, recommend this program to anyone considering homeschooling their child.”

— Brodie G. Calvert Mom

“My son missed the public school Kindergarten cut-off date by two weeks, so we enrolled with Calvert “temporarily”. Four years later, we’re still with Calvert.  My son is testing years ahead of his peers and I could not imagine a better curriculum.  We plan to continue with Calvert through High School.”

— Heather B. Calvert Mom

“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.”

— Elizabeth Z. Calvert Grandmother

Chloe Collins, Calvert student, singer and songwriter with her own record label

“I love the flexibility that Calvert gives me. I can spend a whole day in the studio recording a song and still get all my schoolwork done. I also love the fact that there is so much one-on-one attention at Calvert; this is both the first year I’m being homeschooled and the first year I’m getting straight A’s!”

— Chloe C. Calvert Academy Student
