Vision and Philosophy

Our vision is to provide an excellent Christian education, and encourage a sense of self-worth, independence, and respect among all students.

Carden Christian Academy is a school of excellence that provides a curriculum that caters to the whole child. We strive to provide a foundation of self-respect, high self-esteem, and joy of learning.

All children are welcome at our school regardless of race, gender, religion, or socioeconomic status. With the Carden Method, we accommodate the various learning styles of each child and assist the child to grow at his/her own pace. The children are provided with the tools essential to their success with the Bible, early intervention of literature, poems, numbers, art appreciation, music, writing, and French.

Each classroom environment is structured in a way that makes each child welcome and motivated to work to the best of his/her ability. We believe in order for the child to be successful in school and beyond, they should have significant room for emotional, social, and physical development. Ms. Mae Carden's principle is incorporated in all areas of learning, which is to have the students identify, define and experience all areas of education.
