Financial Aid:  

The Calverton School offers financial aid to enroll mission-appropriate students who would not otherwise have access to an independent school education due to financial constraints. At Calverton, we believe an effective learning environment includes an appreciation for diversity.

Awarding aid makes our school more accessible and affordable, thus fostering a more financially diverse school community. Calverton does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual preference, or national origin in its admission or financial aid processes.

Among other measures, Calverton uses Financial Aid for Student Tuition (FAST) to assist in financial aid calculations. Grants are awarded to families on an annual basis, beginning in March and continuing until funds are depleted. For more information on aid please click HERE.

School Song:


Between the river and the Bay
There is a School we love.
It guides us on and lights the way
Sure as the stars above.

To Calverton we will be true
As we go on life's way.
We pledge our love and loyalty
To Calvert's blue and gray.

And as we journey through the years
We hold our standards high.
We seek the truth, and finding it
Grow strong as days go by.

To Calverton we will be true
As we go on life's way.
We pledge our love and loyalty
To Calvert's blue and gray.
