I am thinking about using Calvert but it is soooooooooo expensive! Does anyone use it and is it worth the money?? I also notice Connections Academy uses all Calvert and has become partners but it is a charter virtual online school but it is free with all Calvert stuff. Wondering if it is worth a try????

I use it and love it. There are a lot of people on Calvert yahoo site and Calvert's website who use the charter schools.

I think it would be worth a try.

I use calvert for my son. I have the slower pace version. It is so much better than other version. It has a spelling cd. The other version is more for a public school. mine is for homeschool. 8)

We've used Calvert kindergarten a lot and love it, though the later grades get a bit dry imho, and my only feeling after completing grade eight was relief that I never had to see it again :) Everything is just so dang rigid, you even have to format your math papers just right or they score them down.

I guess it would have been more fun if we were just doing it totally on our own and ignored a few things like diagramming (useless and promptly forgotten...) and carefully templating math papers (also useless). I don't mind working hard if what I'm learning actually seems to have a point to it.

Incidently, Calvert 8th grade is equivalent to at least mid-level high school most other places.
