Probably one of the most anxiety provoking experiences for a loving parent is making the decision to educate your child on your own terms. Over the past six years, I have spoken repeatedly with parents who want to make sure that they make the right academic decisions for their children, and that those choices bear good fruit. In my personal opinion, new homeschooling families cannot go wrong by choosing Calvert.
I recently had the occasion to work with a Calvert mother who said something that I think is profound, and I want to share it with you: “More than one hundred years of experience and over 600,000 educated students cannot be wrong. Calvert is absolutely the best way to begin to home educate your children. Calvert has given me the confidence to know that I am in the right place, with the right materials, choosing the best educational path for my child.” And I could not agree with her more. The things that drive parents crazy in pursuing a home education for their children are questions like: “How do I know I am choosing an academically sound program?” “Does accreditation make a difference?” “Am I going to know how to handle the day-to-day mysteries of educating my child?” “What happens if I get it wrong?”
Calvert allows you to choose the best educational path for your child. One of my favorite things to say about Calvert and its curriculum is that it allows me to “homeschool FOR myself, but not BY myself”. As my new friend in Arizona said, “600,000 people could not be wrong.” Join us at Calvert. And be assured that you are making the right call – now.
