ILP

Purpose Learning

At Calvert, we view each day and each class as an opportunity to raise leaders, and it is ingrained deeply throughout our school culture.

The core of the Calvert experience is fostering an excellent foundation of knowledge and skills. The Institute for Leadership & Purpose (ILP) builds off these key principles with strategic programming aimed at cultivating leadership and purpose through class projects, community outreach, and local partnerships that extend through all grades.

Project Based Learning

The ILP will enhance the school’s academic curriculum with age-appropriate cornerstone projects within each grade. These projects will be grounded in best practices of project-based learning, and will prioritize key pedagogical concepts that include cultural competencies, real-world learning, and an inquiry-based approach. Each project will have specific “head” components (education), “hands” components (building and action), and “heart” components (reflection). The implementation of project-based learning practices will be guided through the new ILP Teaching Fellowship Program and cultivated in partnership with the
World Leadership School. Below are some examples of projects currently running at Calvert.
