I have been considering Calvert as a homeschool for my sixth grade child.
I was wondering if you could tell me what you think of the Calvert curriculum (especially for sixth grade.) (I would love to hear from actual Calvert parents, too! Very Happy)

You can sheck out their web site here

(they have a really nice web site!)

I have used Calvert PreK, K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th and I absolutely love it. The lesson manual is great. I only supplement with Prima Latina and some other readers. I get Calvert's Discoveries in Reading, but you can get their booklist and get the books from the library. I think it is very well rounded. I was unsure so I emailed the Bauer's from TWTM and was assured my kids would get a very good education with Calvert, though it is not strictly classical.

It's a good, solid packaged curriculum, but perhaps a bit rigid in the later grades. It's also quite rigorous - 8th grade Calvert is equivalent to 9th or 10th in most other schools / curricula.
