Calvert Summer Programs

Summer QUEST

QUEST is part of the Middle Grades Partnership Program (MGP) that forges connections between public and private school communities. It is a student-centered and inquiry-based summer program that offers participants opportunities to broaden and deepen their sense of self and the world in which they live. Through engaging and challenging project-based learning, students will find and use information to produce meaningful results, solve authentic problems, and engage in deep learning surrounded by a theme.
Calvert MGP/QUEST has moved to a remote program for this summer and will offer a variety of exciting virtual enrichment opportunities.  Students will engage in project-based learning centered around our weekly themes (listed below), along with a number of afternoon elective activities.
 
MGP/QUEST is a four-week program from 10:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M. that is FREE for rising Sixth Grade Calvert students and returning Seventh Grade & Eighth Grade Calvert students from last year's program.
 
Monday, June 29 - Friday, July 3, 2020: Engineering Part 1 
Monday, July 6 - Friday, July 10, 2020: Engineering Part 2
Monday, July 13 - Friday, July 17, 2020: Space Travel and Exploration
Monday, July 20 - Friday, July 24, 2020: City Design, Architecture, and Transportation
 
Through a combination of synchronous sessions and guided asynchronous enrichment activities, students will complete various interactive projects related to our weekly themes.  There will also be many opportunities for students to collaborate and connect in a small group setting.  Supplies will be provided for students to fully engage in our project-based program.  The afternoon block will include electives such as athletics and games, music, art, drama, book groups, cooking, programming, and other topics related to our weekly themes.
 
There is limited space, so please register quickly to ensure that your child has a spot. Please note that for rising Sixth Graders, preference will be given to students who can attend all four weeks of the program.
 
As a result of hands-on experiential learning, students will be empowered, resulting in real world skills such as resiliency, flexibility, persistence, empathy, and self-awareness. Academic skills will also be incorporated on a daily basis in an effort to maintain progress from the school year.
 
Calvert School has partnered with Hamilton Elementary/Middle School, and in addition to hosting both Calvert and Hamilton students for Summer MGP/QUEST, we will offer events and activities throughout the school year that foster this partnership.


 
Mr. McMahon will individually email parents of rising Seventh & Eighth Grade students who participated in MGP/QUEST last year.
