The youngster has become the fifth player to move to Everton and join their youth system this summer.
The former Sheffield United prospect has joined Chris Renshaw, Bassala Sambou, Joe Hilton and Nathan Baxter in moves to the Toffees academy.
Premier League giants Manchester United were also reportedly interested in Calvert-Lewin, but Ronald Koeman’s side have won the battle for the youngster.
The young forward made one appearance for Sheffield United in the new campaign with an 83rd minute substitute appearance in the Capital One Cup against Crewe.
Calvert-Lewin spent the first half of last season in League Two with Northampton, where he scored eight goals in 26 encounters.
He is now part of an academy which has boasted the likes of Wayne Rooney, Ross Barkley, Joey Barton and Leon Osman, to name a few of the famous graduates.
