Join a Virtual Homeschool Group

At Calvert, we work hard to create a sense of community for our homeschooling families. Though every family's experiences and location is different, each family shares a common bond—the Calvert program.

Whether you are homeschooling in a small rural community, a big city, a foreign country, or in a boat sailing around the world, chances are that other children are tackling the same Calvert lesson as you each day. We try to build on this commonality of experience by giving our families a number of ways to share with one another. In all of these programs, we hope to build a sense of community among people who value their use of Calvert Education’s program.

Parent Community

All Calvert families are part of our educational community. While each homeschooling situation is unique, we try to give our parents a number of ways to share their Calvert experience. Use this page to ask and answer questions with other parents on our forum or to read blog entries from our Calvert staff, providing helpful information and insight into the people that shape the curriculum that helps you educate your child. Check out the Calvert Parent Community.

Student Community

Enrolled students connect with one another through the Calvert Student Community. This password-protected area allows middle-school students to participate in real-time online instant messaging in a secure chat room environment (activity is recorded). Students are able to establish their own online blogs and comment on each other’s submissions.

Calvert Pen Pals

Historically, our Pen Pal program has given children a chance to practice their writing skills while learning about someone in another part of the world. Over the years, hundreds of Calvert students have started as Pen Pals and grown to be lifelong friends. Times have changed however, as have the needs of our families. Should you like to continue the Calvert Pen Pal tradition, we recommend that you “like” our Facebook page, and post your request there. We will see that your request is posted to all our families. If you do not have access to Facebook, you may send an email request to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will post on Facebook on your behalf. Calvert values the relationships that are cultivated through the pen pal program and will assist with introductions. Beyond that, Calvert assumes no responsibility for the management of any correspondence among families and students. Calvert encourages you to take all reasonable precautions for internet safety.
