Calvert Virtual Learning Academy
Give your child an exceptional middle school experience!
Calvert School is pleased to offer Calvert Virtual Academy (CVA), a dynamic program for Sixth through Eighth Grades that uses the latest instructional tools to provide an online environment that prepares students for high school. This program offers flexibility and many tiers of instructional support. Your child can work at his or her own pace, accommodating both your family’s schedule and your child’s learning style.
Your child’s academic success is achieved through unparalleled support and plenty of online resources. In the CVA, your child receives the dedicated support and oversight of Online Instructors, who remain with your child all year long.
Virtual Interactive Experiences
Your student will love these live interactive experiences. Each is meant to enhance your student’s academics, foster creativity, add enjoyment, and provide peer interaction.
Online Class Pages
Each student enrolled in CVA receives access to online class pages. The online class pages serve as the hub of communication for students. It is on these pages a student will find weekly CVA announcements, discussion forums, sign-up sheets to attend class parties, virtual fieldtrips, tutorial sessions, and other social outlets. Also found on the Online Class Pages are the CVA assessments that a student will take throughout the school year. The CVA assessments found on the class pages replace the green paper tests that normally come in the box of materials.
In addition to the support of the Education Counselors available to all Calvert families to answer questions regarding daily work and curriculum, CVA families have the added support of the Online Instructors, who:
Assessment and Student Progress
Different from the Advisory Teaching Service, where tests are provided every 20 lessons, assessments in CVA are more frequent in order to evaluate content and skills as they are learned. Students in CVA submit all assessments, including quizzes, projects, and threaded discussions, online. Students are assigned interesting and engaging projects that encourage them to demonstrate their learning in creative ways using the latest technology and web tools. All of these assessments are based on and replace the paper tests used in the Advisory Teaching Service. At the end of every twenty lessons, the student’s scores will be compiled into a final grade for the unit, which will be posted in the student’s online grade book.
Pacing flexibility: In keeping with Calvert’s mission, CVA is designed to fit your family’s schedule and your child’s learning needs while providing a structured curriculum and academic excellence.
Premium program for middle school: All Calvert curriculum is engineered to provide the highest quality education, and CVA is consistent in keeping with those efforts while also offering you and your family new tools to make your child’s learning experience both successful and fun.
Unparalleled support: Support from the Online Instructors and Education Counselors ensures that you and your child succeed academically. They provide tools to help with pacing, develop interesting assignments to help stimulate intellectual curiosity, grade assessments and provide timely feedback, and are available to answer questions and help you and your child tackle especially difficult concepts.
Interactive Learning Community: Virtual interactive experiences such as live tutorials, clubs, book discussion groups, and hall pass sessions, along with the class pages and discussion forums, provide students the opportunity to interact with their peers and instructors in a fun and safe online environment.
Enrollment is accepted at any time of year!: Because we want our CVA to fit your schedule, you are able to start anytime during the year that is convenient for you and your family.
