Struggling Students

Every student deserves the opportunity to learn and thrive

Calvert understands that the traditional school environment doesn’t work for every child. Bullying, peer pressure, poor school environment, special needs, learning disabilities, behavioral issues, and even boredom can cause students to struggle in the classroom. Unfortunately, traditional schools are often incapable of meeting the academic, social, emotional, and sensory needs of all students. At Calvert, we believe that all students should have access to curriculum and teaching strategies that are designed to help them learn and thrive. We’re here to help you.

What Does Calvert Provide for Struggling Students?

  • Break times as needed – parents can offer additional breaks and exercise time for students who are easily distracted.
  • Calvert’s Education Counselors can provide lesson modifications and adaptations as needed for special needs students or to fit a child’s learning style.

  • Integrated, hands-on learning materials and multi-sensory learning approaches.
  • The option to receive printed textbooks, printed materials, along with online resources.

We recently began using the Calvert curriculum with our 8 year old Autistic son and we are so pleased. He is engaging and enjoying school again. The workbooks are perfect for him because they aren’t visually overwhelming. The textbooks are beautiful and full of interesting lessons. I really can’t say enough about the positive impact Calvert has had on my son.
