Calvert School believes that community service is an integral part of the educational journey. The program is committed to providing meaningful experiences for students, faculty, their families and the greater Calvert Community.
By the time our Calvert students graduate, it is our hope that each student will have a basic understanding of the community in which they live, gain problem solving and critical thinking skills to bring about change, and gain appreciation of their ability to impact the world around them in positive ways.
Projects range from hands on activities such as plantings and stream clean ups to writing letters to troops and home-bound elderly. Projects are completed in a variety of settings and are tailored to the age group participating.
Several times throughout the year, Calvert also hosts optional family service events, in which families work side by side with other members of the Calvert community in service projects on and off campus.
