Striving For Academic Excellence at Calvert School

0 Written by: | Monday, Jun 09, 2014 3:00pm

Calvert SchoolAcademic Excellence

At Calvert School, the youngest students begin their education with a focus on the fundamentals. Children are taught the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic to develop a mastery of these subjects through their course of study in the Lower School.

As early as Fifth Age, children are learning reading and math skills, as well as being introduced to a foreign language. Beginning in the Seventh Age, students learn the formal Calvert Script and how to develop and write compositions. Also at this time, students begin to keep folder papers, a collection of work that is corrected and perfected over the school year so that students learn from their mistakes and master those skills that will prepare them for future academic excellence.

By Tenth Age, students have mastered these fundamentals and are ready to enter the Calvert Middle School with a sense of purpose and pride in their work.

Student Life

(from the Calvert School site)

Although a student’s day at Calvert School is full of purpose and concentration, it is also well balanced with opportunities for curiosity and exuberance. Part of our mission is to engage and ignite the inherent desire of all children to explore and understand the world around them.

Our teachers are passionate about enhancing our students’ education through fine arts, technology, extra-curricular activities, community outreach, and athletics. Most important, they transfer this passion to our children, which will lead them to become productive and responsible members of
their communities.

Calvert School prepares its graduates to embrace the challenges awaiting them with confidence, a love of learning, and a growing sense of themselves and their place in the world. We work to preserve the traditions that have been important to so many of our students through generations, but we also strive to inspire students to cultivate new interests and passions.

Rare Civil War Auction in Towson This Weekend

0 Written by: | Friday, May 02, 2014 1:30pm


Alex Cooper Auctioneers, Inc., one of the largest auction houses in the mid-Atlantic, is excited to present the expansive Civil War collection of James R. Weitzel on May 3, 2014. This treasure trove of rare Union and Confederate firearms, accoutrements, uniforms and other historically important documents details the lives and belongings of soldiers and civilians during this turbulent time period in U.S. history. This collection, procured by Weitzel over a 50-year period, will be of profound interest to collectors, military historians and Civil War museums around the country. It is estimated that some of the more unique pieces will sell for upwards of $20,000.

A Silver Spring, Md., resident, James R. Weitzel died in 2011. Collecting Civil War memorabilia was his life’s passion, and he specifically sought out Civil War-era items that could be traced back to their original owners. Weitzel also searched for one-of-a-kind pieces from both the Union and Confederate sides of the war, a rarity among Civil War collectors.

Some of the more notable items for auction will include:
·         A handwritten note from Abraham Lincoln authorizing the passage of Lewis Parker from New York to Savannah, Georgia, on Dec. 27, 1864
