The Calhoun School
The Calhoun School
Teachers in each of our three divisions, a majority of whom have advanced degrees, have been lauded for their challenging curriculum. And our graduating seniors go on to many of the best colleges and universities.
While more than 100 years of change and progress present challenges for any institution, Calhoun has continuously risen to the occasion by keeping abreast of the best educational theories and practices, and by empowering our teachers to teach and our students to learn. Self assurance, curiosity, responsibility, independence and teamwork are inherent in Calhoun’s approach to education.
Calhoun inspires a passion for learning through a progressive approach to education that values intellectual pursuit, creative expression, self discovery and community involvement.
Community services:
In each division of Calhoun, age-appropriate programs involve the students in projects that are meant to expand self-confidence, teach understanding and respect for people of all ages from many different backgrounds and cultures, and to encourage students to become valuable members within the community.
Students at all division levels have opportunities to engage in community service on a personal level, by volunteering at senior citizen residences, day care centers, food pantries, or by helping in a clean-up of a near-by park.
Within the school, there is also enormous value placed on service to the school community. In addition to Harvest Festival, when older students lead "families" of mixed-age groups, there are numerous opportunities created for student-to-student mentoring. A Peer Leadership program in the Upper School, a brother-sister project in Middle School, and a "pen-pal" program between older and younger Lower School children all promote strong bonds among students within and between divisions.
By engaging children at very young ages in community service, by encouraging understanding and respect for diversity, and by fostering sensitivity and compassion to others' needs, Calhoun finds that these values carry on in its students well beyond their school years.  Stephan Kolbert '86 credits Calhoun for giving him "a passion for community and for learning, and the ability to develop wonderful relationships with people.  I've been able to take those ideals and apply them to the different parts of my life."
The Calhoun School was also an early pioneer in seeking and supporting a culturally diverse student body. Parents, alumnae/i and the Board of Trustees continue to champion this diversity through generous financial aid and scholarships.
Calhoun’s goal is to develop in each child a love of learning, the intellectual means to achieve learning, a high level of skill mastery, a belief in his or her self, respect for differences in people and a commitment to the process of democracy.
