Fifth Grade - Seventh Grade Applicants

Fifth Grade - Seventh Grade Applicants

In the Middle School, Calvert’s Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Graders learn to be confident, purpose-driven leaders both inside the classroom and out on the sports field.

Through grade-level projects, the boys and girls hone their research, writing, and public speaking alongside STEM, English, art, and language offerings. Robust cocurricular activities like athletics, clubs, and the Middle School leadership program, the Institute for Leadership & Purpose, ensure that Calvert graduates become well-rounded learners long before they leave our doors.
