Designed to help parents meet common state homeschooling requirements, each year-long course consists of 18-25 lessons and 160-180 days of instruction.
Students prepare for the rigor of Middle School by studying complex sentence structure and reading challenging non-fiction. They write their own sci-fi narrative, and choose a topic for an opinion piece about issues that impact their community.
Math introduces students to multiplying two-digit numbers by two digit numbers, practicing long division with and without remainders, adding subtracting, and multiplying unlike fractions and mixed numbers, working with decimals, graphing on a coordinate plane, and calculating the volume of solid figures.
Students carry out investigations, design solutions, and generate fact-based opinions using observation and data analysis. This year, learners develop a plan to decrease air pollution.
This year’s focus is on our nation’s growth after the Civil War—through World War I, World War II, and the Cold War and into the Modern Era. Students create interactive virtual exhibits to show their state’s history.
In this online course, 5th grade artists explore contour, naturalism, and linear perspectives. In addition, students study paintings from ancient Egypt through the modern art movement.
In this online course, students are required to participate in regular physical activities. The focus is on warm-up and cool down, water safety, goal setting, nutrition, muscle strength, and flexibility.
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
