Carden Method

Miss Mae Carden developed the Carden Method in the late 1930s and early 1940s in response to what she felt was a deteriorating academic curriculum and a turning away from the teaching of traditional American values in public schools. Miss Carden eventually formed the Carden Educational Foundation to promote the Carden Method on a national scale, to support teacher training, and to provide Carden curricular materials to Carden schools. Today, there are approximately 100 Carden schools throughout the United States with recent expansion to other countries around the world.
