November 10, 2014Best schooling experience my now 23 year old son had. He is a mathematics major and much of his passion started at Carden. He learned to love to learn... That alone is a reason for 5 stars but the real reason is the school exemplifies exceptional living....using your gifts, whatever they may be, at the highest level feasible.... Not demanding or demeaning but coaching it out of the student. Great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a Christ-centered (not religious), education for their highly-capable child.

I currently have 2 girls in the upper grades at Carden Country School and they both have loved their sweet, little school since kindergarten! Even though the standards are high and they have homework almost every day, they still love it. They talk about their school with pride and joy. They have never had a teacher they did not adore. All of the Carden teachers cherish the children as well. It is an amazing feeling to know that the teachers actually know your child really well, and care about not only their scholastic achievements, but their personal development as well. I truly believe that Carden has helped me raise my girls into the kind, considerate and lovely young women that they are today. I am forever grateful

Carden Country School provides the highest level curriculum in the area. The student teacher ratio is amazing. The teachers are well trained and incredibly caring while still maintaining high academic and behavior standards. Students receive a well rounded education with specialist in French, Physical Education, Music and Art every week. They memorize scripture, poetry and music in addition to their normal classroom studies. They also have school performances and year-end plays. Students also participate is community events through out the year, such as volunteering at the local food bank. They also have a daily morning opening where they learn about things like God and having good character. Carden is truly a partner for parents who desire to raise children with high academic standards, strong Christian faith and good moral character.
