On Friday, June 15, we had the pleasure of honoring Calvert Academy High School graduates from around the world. Accepted to more than 25 universities in the U.S. and abroad, with many full and partial merit scholarships, these graduates have bright futures ahead.
In the words of Calvert CEO Steve Gross, “You’ve charted a different path for yourselves. That’s a hallmark of true leaders – creating a path to achieve goals in a way that doesn’t follow the herd. A way that reflects your beliefs. A way that works for unique circumstances. Frankly, you are an inspiration. Not just to your families, and to the educators at Calvert, but to the broader community.”
As families celebrated the achievements of their students, the students themselves were able to meet their classmates, face-to-face, for the first time. The theme of this year’s commencement exercise was “Giving Back to the World Around You”.
“You have dared to be different. You have embarked on an unconventional, innovative educational path. And to paraphrase Robert Frost, you took the road less traveled and that has made all of the difference.”
— Dr. Nancy Grasmick, Calvert Education Board of Directors, addressing the Calvert Academy homeschool graduates
Each Calvert Academy graduate has met the strict requirements of the Maryland Department of Education and received a certified high school diploma through the State of Maryland.
