These days it is difficult to gauge whether we are living in the best or worst of days. These times require us to acclimate to the shifts in public opinion, government policy, and social displacement. Despite the acclimation, these days also offer us the opportunity to be protectors of what we value. Rewriting the patterns of society, instilling values and morals we hold true, and leading collaboratively from places of great vision and integrity. Perhaps our greatest advantage comes from inviting others to the world we aspire to live in, and together working to build it with our own hands. Carden Academy of Whittier offers more than strong academics. We believe in the arts, instilling manners in our students, and illustrating imperative behaviors for society. We are diverse. We are unique. We are Carden.
