Calverton’s culture of connection, respect, and community is palpable.

It starts the moment a student enters our buildings each morning and receives a handshake and a friendly greeting. It culminates when each senior is celebrated at Commencement through personal testimony read aloud by one of our teachers before the diploma is awarded. In between these touchpoints, Calverton’s students are encouraged to stretch beyond their comfort zones, find their strengths and voices, and broaden their perspectives as global citizens and people of character.

Tucked between the Chesapeake Bay and the Patuxent River, Calverton’s expansive campus welcomes a diverse student body from five surrounding counties throughout Southern Maryland. Small class sizes allow dedicated teachers to know and value each learner and provide a balanced yet challenging educational experience to meet each one where they are academically. Starting in pre-kindergarten, our youngest Cougars balance skill and play-based learning while an International Baccalaureate curriculum highlights our Upper School program offers students opportunities to deepen their expression, collaboration, and critical thinking abilities.

Our graduates depart Calverton with confidence and the moral compass necessary to live an engaged and meaningful life. 

Calverton is a community dedicated to helping students reach their full and unique potential on our campus and in the world beyond. We invite you to spend a few moments learning more about the opportunities for growth our students enjoy, our commitment to belonging, and how we bring alive our student-centered mission.

We eagerly await the opportunity to connect with you and have you experience firsthand the people, programs, and possibilities that make Calverton such an extraordinary place.
