Is Calvert Curriculum Christian? Neutral? Secular?

Calvert Curriculum is a secular curriculum that teaches evolution/an old-earth/natural processes for the earth's formation. For example, their Grade 2 Science curriculum provides the following explanation of earth's early history: "One theory explains that many years ago, there was only a big, giant cloud in space. This cloud was made of dust and gas. As it got smaller and smaller, a star formed. This star is called the sun. Rocks were also in space. They crashed into each other to make planets. Earth was a very hot place when it was formed. Both water and the sky were missing. over time, Earth slowly cooled down and gases were released. These gases cooled down to make water and the sky...The earth did not have an ocean when it was formed. It rained when the gasses cooled. It rained for a very long time. The rain filled low-lying areas on earth...the early Earth was mostly filled with water. Plants first grew in the water. "

How much is Calvert Homeschooling / What does Calvert Curriculum Cost?
