Lower School—Early Childhood
Young children are naturally enthusiastic and curious. Our approach to learning in Lower School—Early Childhood begins with meeting children where they are and allowing them to develop at their own pace, by nurturing their sense of inquiry, joy and confidence.
The Middle School is marked by Calhoun’s joyful spirit. You'll find mathematicians tackling algebraic puzzles, scientists creating catapults, and writers publishing their own literary magazine. The course work is multicultural, project-oriented, and designed to stretch students’ thinking from the concrete to the abstract.
Calhoun's Upper School is a strong foundation for growth. The breadth of academic opportunities challenges students to dig deeper, think outside the box and unlock their potential.
