Inspiring Your Child’s Passion for Learning

A time for discovery, the elementary school years set the stage for a lifetime of learning. Using Calvert’s curriculum, students learn not only fundamental concepts and skills, but they also learn how to use what they learn and to love learning.

Appealing to children’s natural curiosity, our curriculum emphasizes active, student-centered learning over memorization and drills. This Calvert approach to homeschooling helps parents engage students with:

  • PROJECTS that apply learning to the real world and are tailored to their interests.
  • Activities that encourage them to think for themselves as they apply what they LEARN in meaningful ways.
  • Assessments where they USE their learning to demonstrate mastery of each concept.
  • Opportunities to SHOWCASE what they’ve learned in ways that allow them to experience the utility of learning.

Developing Foundational Skills

Applying the Calvert approach across our Language Arts, History & Geography, Math, and Science curriculum, our program empowers students to:

  • Develop strong reading comprehension and writing skills.
  • Learn fundamental math concepts.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • Begin exploring the wonders and principles of science.
  • Learn more about the world around them.

Individual Courses

Our individual courses are a great way to mix and match classes to create a complete educational program for your child. These courses can be used to round out your current homeschool curriculum, supplement a traditional brick-and-mortar school program, or to brush up on skills over the summer.


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.
