from the Calvert School Website:
Learning comes into the room when the child senses the beauty and usefulness of the skill being taught.
–Virgil M. Hillyer, First Head Master of Calvert School (1899-1931)
A Calvert School education is a balance of tradition and innovation. Whether it’s greeting the Head Master with a strong handshake each morning or compiling their best works in portfolios, students are taught the Calvert Way.
The fundamentals of reading, writing, and arithmetic ingrained during Lower School years pave the way for greater independence and individual expression in Middle School. All this ensures our students acquire the knowledge to face the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century.
More than anything else, the Calvert legacy is one of academic excellence that fosters a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
