On behalf of the entire community, welcome to the Calvert School.  I hope that the information on this website will provide you with a brief overview of who we are and what we believe is important in educating young boys and girls.  Of course, no look into Calvert is complete without walking through our beautiful campus and meeting the students and faculty who make our school such a special place to learn and work.  For over 100 years, Calvert has been stressing the fundamental elements of a traditional education.  Our goal is to graduate independent learners, whose mastery of basic skills and academic curiosity will serve as the bedrock of a purposeful life.  We believe this is one reason why our students traditionally attend some of the finest high schools and universities in the nation - Calvert students not only want to learn, they know how to learn.

As only an elementary and middle school, we are able to focus all of our attention on the ever important early childhood and early adolescent years.  We understand that our students are not only growing academically, but physically and emotionally as well. Younger students are given an opportunity to learn from our older boys and girls, and middle school children are challenged to be role models and to lead - two often overlooked, but critical steps in a middle schooler’s development.  In addition to our emphasis on academic excellence, we stress and value the character development of each child.  Respect, compassion, responsibility, and honor are just a few of the ideas that we strive to instill in our students. 

Calvert is a place where your child will be known and nurtured.  It is a school founded on academic excellence and committed to providing our students with a solid educational foundation that will carry them through a lifetime of learning.  As you learn more about our community, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions. 
All the Best,

Andrew Holmgren
