Carden Academy in Mission Viejo, Southern Orange County in the Saddleback Valley is a private school offering Kindergarten (Junior Primary) - 8th Grade programs. Our method of instructions awakens a natural desire of learning in each of the students and simultaneously equipping them with a sound foundation of academic skills and knowledge. However for the educational progress of the child, the child must inculcate self-discipline, self-confidence, and stamina in them.
We teach reading, composition, grammar, literature, history, spelling, math, geography, and science; a solid foundational curriculum. These fields of study are enhanced by classes in music, computer, Spanish, physical education, and art. Because all subjects are integrated and sequential in structure, students can see and comprehend the development of each new idea.
We realize that selecting the best school for your child is an important responsibility, and we hope that you will find the school for which you are looking at Carden Academy. We have a well-rounded curriculum which leads students toward high academic achievement and a strong sense of self-esteem.
The Buckley School is a private, co-educational pre-kindergarten through to grade 12 school, the oldest coed day school located in Los Angeles, unique in its high level of academics, positive, friendly community, and small size. Based in Sherman Oaks, we serve families in Encino, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Beverly Glen and surrounding communities. More than preparation for high school, students are moved thoughtfully and sensitively from Lower School and prepared for the more departmentalized Upper School program.
The school climate permits them to develop their abilities and a love of learning while they are challenged academically. Dr. Buckley’s approach addresses the development of the whole student, enabling them to become well-rounded, knowledgeable, and independent. At Buckley, we look for students who are well suited to our philosophy. For us, success means feeling safe to take a risk, ask a question, try out for a play or run for office. It means students who take the opportunity to learn and grow in all areas of school life, inside and outside of the classroom.
