Learning By Doing

Calhoun's curriculum represents the best of holistic, progressive teaching and learning—engaging, active and hands-on.  The active learner is encouraged to discover and experience; to make those connections and be able to recall and connect them to new information.

Interdisciplinary curriculum—weaving together various disciplines around a central theme—is a way that Calhoun teachers promote depth of learning as opposed to just accumulating information. This integrated, project-based approach begins as early as the threes and continues through Calhoun's Upper School. And many of these experiential projects are site-based--taking our students into our local community's neighborhoods and beyond.
