Calvert Academy™

calvert-private-online-academyCalvert Academy is an accredited, online private school for 3rd-12th grade students. This complete, diploma-granting program combines the flexibility of at-home learning with a rigorous academic curriculum.

Students enrolled in our private school will work with their Learning Guide (typically a parent, adult relative, or tutor), who acts as the primary instructor. The Learning Guide instructs his/her student using Calvert’s daily lessons. The Calvert Academy teacher supports the Learning Guide and student by delivering weekly live lessons, providing feedback on assessments, and assisting students with questions via phone and email. Calvert Academy teachers are also available for 1:1 or small group support, in an online classroom environment, on an as-needed basis.

Our online course sessions and interactive tools also provide a unique opportunity for students to engage with peers, work on collaborative projects, and develop relationships with fellow Calvert Academy students in a fun and engaging environment.

Curriculum and Courses

The Calvert Academy Online Private School uses the Calvert Education curriculum and offers a comprehensive educational experience. Our academically rigorous, college preparatory program is reflective of the highest international standards and will prepare your student for success in college and beyond.

Our course offerings include core subject areas such as Math, Science, History, and Language Arts, along with various World Language courses, and electives options. See Calvert’s High School curriculum.

Faculty and Support

While our Calvert Academy students learn virtually, from their own homes, our certified teachers will provide your student with:

  • Engaging, interactive, live online class sessions

I researched private college prep schools in my area and compared them to Calvert Academy. The Calvert program won, hands down. Not only was Calvert Academy more affordable, but the curriculum far surpassed even the most elite private schools. I’ve been thoroughly impressed by the program and my son’s teachers.
