Carden School of Fresno is a unique, non-sectarian co-ed school, offering the Carden curriculum from junior kindergarten through 8th Grade. This is the Valley’s best kept secret – an institution that offers a comprehensive education addressing the student as a whole, targeting his or her emotional and mental development, not only teaching facts but the knowledge of how to apply those facts in real life situations.

Carden School of Fresno is based on the Carden Method, established by Mae Carden, which is designed to help children develop their innate powers of analytical and organized thinking through a structured and stimulating academic curriculum. We cultivate in each student a lifelong passion for learning and instill self-confidence, creativity and communication skills. We recognize the uniqueness of each child and are committed to preserving and developing that individuality.
