Advisory Teaching Service

Mother reviewing child's ATS testFamilies seeking additional support may enroll in the Calvert Advisory Teaching Service (ATS). Students enrolled in Calvert’s Advisory Teaching Service are assigned an Advisory Teacher who provides evaluations of your child’s work in all subjects, including detailed feedback on composition, mechanics, and processing skills. Students receive a personal letter with each set of corrected tests providing additional motivation and support. Additionally, ATS students may also request their official transcripts. Advisory Teaching Service enrollment begins a partnership that will reinforce and support your homeschool journey.

Advisory Teaching Service (ATS) benefits include:

  • An assigned teacher who sees your child through completion of his or her course
  • An evaluation of your child’s ATS assessments in all subjects
  • Detailed feedback on composition, mechanics, and processing skills
  • Motivation and encouragement for your child to do his or her best work
  • Suggestions for improved study and insightful comments
  • A partner to reinforce the observations and instructional priorities that you, the Learning Guide, have set for your child
  • A certificate of completion and an official transcript (available upon request) which may help fulfill your state’s reporting requirements

My son loves reading the positive and encouraging comments his advisory teacher adds to each of his tests. I love the peace of mind knowing that we have transcripts for each completed grade level and that a teacher has reviewed his work.
