Study at Calverton School

Upper School students are expected to develop the self-discipline to determine their academic needs and ends and to assume the primary responsibility for their own education. The development of cognitive and research skills necessary to succeed as a student is an integral part of a Calverton Upper School education. As a college preparatory school, Calverton is committed to providing each student a firm background in the basic content areas. At the same time, the Upper School recognizes the importance of athletics and extracurricular programs in establishing a sense of responsibility and commitment to the community.

Each student's contribution to the Upper School is important and students have many opportunities to become involved and to develop their leadership potentials. At Calverton, athletics, the arts, publications and student government are open to any student with the interest and willingness to make the commitment. A valued goal of the Upper School is to have students learn that they can and should return to the community something for what they have received. A pattern of service to the School is developed early and maintained in the Upper School, while service to a wider community outside of Calverton is strongly encouraged of all Upper School students.

The Calverton School has both seven-day residential opportunities for students. Students collaborate with faculty in a rigorous academic environment that is consistent with the expectations of the most respected colleges and universities. Calverton teachers take a personal interest in each student and help them adjust to residential life on campus. Our teachers are focused on continuous growth and superior education. Each student is assigned an academic advisor, in addition to their college counselor, Dean of Students, and the Head of the Upper School, who identifies individual student strengths and opportunities for growth. 

Residences at The Calverton School are located on campus in our One World Residential Village, designed to provide a home away from home with its traditional architecture and design. There are four homes in which students reside: Chesapeake House, Potomac House, Patuxent House, and James House. Each home has a House Parent who lives with the students, helping them in their daily routines. Rooms are modern, comfortable and generally shared with one other student.
