Calvert Summer Programs 2020

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.
QUEST is a four-week program from 8:15 A.M. – 3:30 P.M. that is FREE for rising Sixth Grade Calvert students and returning Seventh Grade & Eighth Grade Calvert students from last year's program.

This summer’s weekly themes will be announced in early February. Weekly themes from past years have included vertical farming; ancient and modern timekeeping devices engineering; app design and programming; city design, architecture and transportation; gears, machines, and robots; and space travel and exploration.
 
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 QUEST, we will offer events and activities throughout the school year that foster this partnership.


 
Rising Sixth Grade Registration Will Open in Mid-Late February
Mr. McMahon will individually email parents of rising Seventh & Eighth Grade students who participated in QUEST last year.
