With colorful read-aloud texts, fun projects, and interactive online learning, our Kindergarten curriculum draws you and your child together into a vibrant homeschooling experience.
Designed to develop the foundational skills your child will need in 1st Grade, our program weaves reading and writing instruction and practice throughout the curriculum.
Using our integrated approach, you’ll help your child develop critical thinking skills for reading while learning phonics skills such as rhyming and word patterns in context. These skills will be further reinforced as he/she begins to learn formal printing skills.
Together, we’ll also help your child get off to a confident start with numbers. Using the research-based Singapore Math Method, our Kindergarten math course will help your child develop strong number sense, mental math, and problem-solving skills. Perhaps most importantly, these lessons make learning Math fun!
Designed to help parents meet common state homeschooling requirements, each year-long course consists of 18-25 lessons and 160-180 days of instruction.
Our comprehensive Kindergarten homeschool program includes everything you need to successfully educate your child at home:

Kindergarten is available in our Digital + Print Experience or in our new, more affordable Digital Experience.

With our Digital Experience, you’ll have access to the same texts and materials via e-textbooks and digital downloads.
Kindergartners learn to print and use their new skill to write about animals, their community, and create a book about weather. Children read engaging texts that introduce phonics skills and develop critical thinking.
The focus is on counting up to 100, addition, subtraction, measuring, and shapes. Students engage in projects like making a number book to teach younger students, and measuring and weighing an item to ship it to a family in need. Students write in the colorful Math in Focus workbook and learn how to access grade-appropriate digital interactives.
Students observe patterns in the natural world to answer scientific questions, construct arguments with evidence to support claims, develop and use models, and communicate solutions to provide detail about scientific ideas. They learn about weather and create a weather forecast.
The Social Studies curriculum introduces America’s historical figures, symbols, and holidays. Students learn about globes and maps by making their very own treasure map. Kids are introduced to jobs and money and learn how to write a resumé that highlights their special talents.
Lessons help young learners establish a basic understanding of health and fitness.
Students are introduced to the concepts of personal safety, healthy behaviors, nutrition, communication, disease prevention, basic anatomy, and physiology.
My son missed the public school Kindergarten cut-off date by two weeks, so we enrolled with Calvert temporarily. Four years later, we’re still with Calvert. My son is testing years ahead of his peers and I could not imagine a better curriculum. We plan to continue with Calvert through High School.— Heather B., Calvert Mom
