SC Calvert Academy is a great public school option for schooling at home. The wonderful Calvert School curriculum combined with small classes and caring teachers make this a great elementary and middle school choice for our family.
I think this is a great school and their system is well organized and easy to follow. For the average student this school is exceptional. However, if your child is gifted this may not be the best fit because they don't have anything in place to challenge gifted children. They also don't offer world languages or science kits which was disappointing but easy to supplement on your own. The teachers were great and PASS testing (which is mandatory) was at a convenient location.
SC Calvert Academy positives: Has good teachers,good curriculum,free curriculum. Negative: teaches to the test like all public schools. As soon as you enroll you will hear about PASS testing. If you refuse to sign a form to have your child tested you will be dismissed from SC Calvert Academy. On another option to using Calvert is dealing directly with Calvert and teaching your children all year long and paying private school tuition. Hope this helps.
Awesome teachers and wonderful curriculum! My family loves the flexibility that virtual public school offers, but still have a structured system where a state-certified teacher is there to help when you need it. I also love that my child still has friends (in a virtual setting and meets up at different field trips) and the teacher's present live classes each week for my child so he can have more than one learning style presented to him. Any time you homeschool or virtual school, it will be more work for the parent, but when you see the results, it is an overwhelming sense of happiness to see a child thriving mentally, emotionally, and physically, without the pressures of bullies and peer pressure that seems so prevalent in our society today. I will continue to do virtual school for my other children when they are old enough to attend!
