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.
