Calvert Academy FAQs

Calvert Academy is excited to announce that we have joined Imagine Learning Excellence Academy. We know you’ll have many questions, but our goal is to support you and provide a seamless transition. Any changes that may occur will be shared in advance. And, you’ll be emailed a survey to share your feedback: what you like and what you might want to improve.

What does this change mean for you? Mainly, that your students now have access to more curricula options. Along with the curricula you know and love, we can now offer more NCAA-approved courses and a fully NCAA-certified school of record, as well as more electives and K–5 options in the future.

If you have any additional questions not covered below, please call our new number: 888-866-4989 and press option 4. During the transition, any former emails and numbers will still reach us.

Students requiring additional forms, documents, or information may take longer to register. Please note that it is very important that student information is accurate, legal names are used, and paperwork is filled out correctly to avoid delays in paperwork processing.

Students then have a basic outline/plan to choose the correct courses throughout their educational journey.
