Walden School

Walden School provides an outstanding college-preparatory education in a student-centered environment.
Walden is a K 12 independent school, committed to small class size, highly qualified teachers and an individualized approach to learning.
Our structured and nurturing academic climate motivates students to active participation and maximum achievement.
At Walden, academic, cultural, and religious differences are acknowledged, respected, and celebrated.
In partnership with families, Walden School assists students in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and values needed to succeed and to accept responsibility for their lives in a changing world.
Walden fosters an educational environment in which academic and intellectual development is complemented by a concern for moral, physical, and psychological growth.
We believe that development in all these areas is necessary to play an effective role in a multicultural society.
It's our philosophy that it isn't only students who attend Walden; families do.
The support and participation of parents is critical to the success and well-being of their student.
Walden has an extraordinarily active Parents Association, a governing Board of Trustees in which parents of Walden students are well represented, and a wide range of family activities such as Grandparents Day, Donuts with Dad, Muffins with Mom, the Auction, an annual Thanksgiving lunch, and an open visitation policy.
All of these encourage a closer parent - school relationship.
