What Parents and Fellow Educators Have to Say

It’s gratifying to hear experienced educators and parents alike endorse Calvert’s curriculum and support as “second to none,” “a wonderful fit,” “flexible,” “superb,” “truly a pleasure.”

Why such strong testimonials? One principal said it well: “Unlike other educational vendors, Calvert puts education and what is best for children first.”

We couldn’t have put it better ourselves!

“Calvert’s academic program provides a highly organized and rigorous educational pathway for our parents and their children. Lessons are well-designed and give access to engaging online activities and offline extensions in combination with the daily lessons. Students who have utilized Calvert’s curriculum through the 8th grade have reported back to us that upon entering high school they felt academically prepared to the point where they already had mastery over standards being covered, especially in Language Arts.”

— Charles Heckel, Principal, Rural Virtual Academy on Calvert's renowned curriculum

“We have been proud partners for over a decade and offer it as the premier choice of curriculum for our families. The Calvert support staff is second to none and unlike other educational vendors, Calvert puts education and what is best for children before profit margins. The staff at Calvert are versed in education and can articulate in detail the scope and sequence of their product thoroughly detailing why children are asked to learn and master the essential objectives in each subject matter. The quality, in combination with the staff, makes working with Calvert a valued experience for everyone in our school.”

“Calvert is a wonderful fit for our students and families. It allows our parents time to work side by side with their student to guide them through their learning, while also having the ability to step away and teach some independence.”

— Melissa Horn, Former Executive Director, Wisconsin Virtual Learning

“Calvert’s extensive online resources and comprehensive materials have provided students everything needed for their learning experience. When surveyed, 100% of parent respondents said they would recommend the Calvert curriculum to other families.”

— Carol Klenow, Ed.D., Former Program Administrator, Virtual Learning Academy Consortium

“We’ve loved many things about the Calvert curriculum. Everything is so user-friendly, so vetted, so proven – really, second to none.  Student achievement is a natural result of Calvert’s decades of experience. We’ve even attracted new families because of Calvert… the Calvert legacy speaks for itself.”

— Shelley Andrus, Principal K-8, Bonneville Online Schools

“We started using Calvert when our children were ages 6 and 4 ½. Both children graduated with National Honor Society Awards. Both graduated from college with high honors also!

Calvert gave my children a thorough start to their education and taught them to excel academically.”


“I love the flexibility that Calvert gives me. I can spend a whole day in the studio recording a song and still get all my schoolwork done.”


“The 7th Grade program far exceeded my expectations. As a retired teacher, I was impressed with the quality and depth of the curriculum. It challenged my grandson, but taught him critical thinking skills that he will use for the rest of his life.”


“My son is testing years ahead of his peers and I could not imagine a better curriculum. We plan to continue with Calvert through High School.”


“My 4 year old in the 1st grade curriculum is excelling beyond my expectations. So thankful for a program where he can go at his own pace!”

“She is working so hard. She spends at least 5 hours a day training and then we are spending time with school work throughout the weekend. She is learning so much and enjoying that part. We are really grateful for Calvert.


“Our daughter is doing her math test on the back of a safari Jeep in Botswana, Africa. We love Calvert and have been recommending it to other friends and fans who are considering taking our same journey.”
