Carden’s uniqueness lies in the structure that it provides the students for learning and exploring their world within a safe, nurturing environment.  There is a unity to the program through the works of Mae Carden that gives the students a sense of wonder and encouragement, that challenges each child to achieve his or her best within a small class environment, and an emphasis on the integration of learning. All of this is punctuated with respect for others and service to the community.  One only needs to spend a short time on the campus to understand why Carden is such a wise choice for a growing child. -Lehn Huff, (Former) Carden Board of Directors
