Calvert’s ATS Program: Peace of Mind for New York Families

Our Advisory Teaching Service (ATS) program offers additional peace of mind when following your New York State homeschool reporting requirements.

Your student’s ATS teacher will:

  • Grade assessments and evaluate your student’s work in all subjects, allowing you to focus on daily instruction and oversight.
  • Provide detailed feedback on assessments and encourage your student to do his or her best work with personalized responses.
  • Reinforce the instructional priorities you’ve set as your student’s Learning Guide.
  • Provide a certificate of completion and an official transcript, helping you meet your required quarterly reports for submission to your District Superintendent.

Plus, our Calvert Teaching Navigator allows you to easily keep track of attendance for each student, as required by New York State.

New York Homeschool Support Groups

Homeschool support groups in your state are an excellent way to gain more assistance and guidance in your homeschooling endeavors. A regional support group fosters a wonderful sense of community among homeschooling families and allows for more opportunities to exchange ideas, plan group outings, and share in the overall experience of homeschooling! While Calvert supports the development of community among homeschooling families, this list does not constitute affiliation between Calvert Education and the groups represented below.
