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.
