Mission Statement

Carden Educational Foundation

Our goal is to promote growth of the whole child including emotional and physical development coupled with the pursuit of academic excellence. Small class sizes allow teachers to work closely with each child to develop strengths and target areas of weakness.

The Howard School is affiliated with the Carden Educational Foundation. Our teachers participate in annual professional training programs in the Carden Method. The Howard School offers a Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Program fully incorporating the Carden Curriculum (License #426207512).

The Howard Carden School is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization admitting children without regard to race, creed, color, disability or national origin. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school administered programs.

For more information about admission, please contact Mr. Joel Reed, Headmaster, at 805-745-8448 or headmaster@thehowardschool.org.
