The Carden Method, developed by Mae Carden over half a century ago and employed in
schools throughout the world, is designed to help children develop their innate powers
of analytical and organized thinking in a balanced and challenging environment.

We provide our junior kindergarten through eighth grade students with a superior, well-rounded education using small group instruction. Children develop character, self-confidence, creativity,
and communication skills needed to share their gifts with the world.

We hope this site will be helpful to you in learning more about our school. However, since every
family has specific needs and each child is unique, we encourage you to schedule a private tour
with a member of our administration, so you can experience for yourself what the
Carden Day School of San Jose has to offer!



Congratulations to our 8th Graders on HS admissions!

Celebrating the Eleventh Annual Carden China and Carden Day School of San Jose International Cultural Program!

For ten years, Carden Day School has opened their arms to Carden China, and it has proved to be an excellent time, year after year.
