About Us

Carden Academy + Stratford School Offer

Academic Excellence. Outstanding instruction is given in the core subjects of Mathematics, Language Arts, History, and Science. Our small class sizes and effective instructional methods allow students to work one year ahead of grade level. In fourth grade, high-achieving students have the opportunity to earn a position in our Advanced Math Track program.

Enduring Values. A character development program based on traditional values and traditions is woven into the curriculum at all grade levels. Students strive to develop gracious and virtuous behavior through the application of character qualities to their decision-making and daily interactions with others. Special recognition is given to students exhibiting behaviors that reflect truthfulness, kindness, compassion, patience, enthusiasm, hospitality, gratitude, creativity, determination, self-control, and forgiveness.

Fine Arts Enrichment. Development of the whole child through sequential instruction in Music, Art, Photography, and Dance is highly emphasized. Students study the great composers, learn to read music, develop their vocal abilities, and play the recorder. All students participate in poetry recitations, dramatic skits, and school-wide musical performances. An appreciation for the beauty of nature and our stewardship responsibilities are fostered through outdoor learning activities in our 3-acre nature center. Our Art program provides students with opportunities for individual, creative expression while introducing them to renowned artists, a variety of artistic styles, and the historical context of great works.

Life and Leadership Skills. Technology skills are developed through practical, hands-on assignments in the Computer Lab. Daily Physical Education classes and an athletic program work to develop strength, coordination, and teamwork skills in students. Student Body Officers are elected each trimester, selecting school-wide service projects in which all students are encouraged to participate.

Selecting the best school for your child is an important responsibility. We believe that Carden Academy offers one of the finest educations available today. Make a world of difference in your child's education with families and faculty who recognize the value of a superior educational atmosphere.  Please visit our Stratford campus page for more information.
