As you begin your private school search, it is important to identify your priorities. Knowing exactly what you want your child to gain from his or her education will set clear parameters and help simplify your search. Then, it is time to do some research.
As you investigate different schools, you should focus on finding each institution’s unique offerings, including:
- Academic philosophy and mission
- Grade levels and student age range
- Coed versus single-gender classrooms
- Tuition and fees
- Student testing requirements
- Co-curricular programs
Following your top schools on social media can give you further insight on campus activities and community support.
While many schools boast strong academic and athletic programs, few also have the warm, welcoming community you will find at Calvert School. Under our coed K-8 model, Calvert students are guided by teachers and administrators who specialize in age-based education, ensuring that every child feels known and understood – and the lessons continue long after the school bell rings. Whether they participate in athletics, drama, or community outreach, students feel confident knowing that they are supported by a tight-knit community of friends and parents cheering them on.
Once you find a school with priorities that complement your own, submit an inquiry to further the admissions process and stay up to date on upcoming events.
