Success Stories

Take a look at Calvert and you’ll find an impressive list of families and alumni. Over the course of our history, we have had the privilege of educating hundreds of thousands of students who have grown up to be incredible adults. Among so many others, President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Pulitzer prize winning novelist Pearl S. Buck, and political commentator William F. Buckley, Jr. were at one time or another all Calvert students.

It’s taking us less time to move through the content each day, but my son is more challenged and eager to learn. I know for a fact that this curriculum is more advanced that our public schools and my son is up to the challenge. Thanks, Calvert!

We had our share of daily homeschool battles last year. This year, we’re into more of a groove. The new curriculum has helped tremendously. My son is eager to do more work each day and I’ve found him starting lessons on his own!

— Anna V.

This is our 3rd year with Calvert and I can tell it’s going to be the best. My son and I are thoroughly enjoying the new curriculum. He is more engaged than ever!

— Rebecca C.

This is our 3rd year with Calvert and we are loving the new curriculum. The first few days were a little challenging while we adjusted to the new format but both my girls find the new curriculum more engaging and interesting. They like the projects and are very enthusiastic about the school year.

— Johanny T., Calvert Mom of 3

We are enjoying the program so far! I love the balance of print and digital work. They’ve learned so much already!

— Clara O.

I was worried about the new format at first, but a few weeks in and we’re loving it. My daughter isn’t being told to just memorize something and take a test, she is learning and retaining the material through all the hands-on activities and projects.

— Erin G.

My son seems more engaged and can do more on his own. It takes less time than in the past. This was an update that was needed.

— Donna H.

We also find the new system a lot easier. The kids are enjoying it more and are more independent. My kids are in grade 7,6 & 5.

— Hanim J.

Our 6th graders LOVE that the curriculum is written for them. In our daughter’s words “I feel like the lessons are speaking TO me not at me.”

— Josephine F., Mom of 2

Darien is fitting right into the public school curriculum after homeschooling for 7 years and is near the top of his class with his grades. We are very proud of his accomplishments thus far. His dad and I agree Darien is a product of Calvert Academy. I was able to use their program and schedule to keep him on track and routine in his work.

By the way, did I mention that Darien has done this with several learning disabilities?

— Kim T., Calvert Academy Mom

I love the flexibility I have with Calvert. I was able to play baseball at a high level and make a national swim meet at the same time! Thanks to Calvert I also still have plenty of time to do schoolwork.

— Harrison N., Calvert Middle School Student

Eight years ago we began our Calvert homeschool journey and now we’re done as in the fall Jaiden begins her public high school journey at Baltimore School for the Arts. Jaiden has been complimented on her organizational skills, focus and level of maturity…Calvert did that. A great big Thank You to Calvert Education Services and their Education Counselors, especially Martha Cole, who spoke to me that first day and assured me that I could do it!! We are confident that the strong foundation acquired from Calvert’s curriculum will propel Jaiden into greatness. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
