Walden Center & School is a place where children’s learning is at the center of all we do. A Walden education is as unique as your child.
Our arts-academics integrated approach to teaching and learning is part of a core philosophy that has put Walden Center & School at the forefront of progressive education since 1958. We combine arts education, a deep understanding of child development, and a commitment to social-emotional learning to help us form our unique approach to educating children.

Mission and Philosophy
We are a group of teachers and parents who have created an environment where children take an active role in their own learning and where arts and creative expression are a part of every child’s education, every day.
Everything about Walden is unique. From the way we approach learning to the way we structure our governing board, we have a unique approach which is informed by our philosophy, our history, and our mission.
