Small class size to ensure personal attention for your child, developmental-based, integrated learning approach, an environment that builds positive self-esteem and self-confidence.

Mission Statement:
In partnership with families, Walden School provides an educational environment- both academic and social - that fosters a lifelong enthusiasm for learning and challenges individual students to reach their full potential so they may flourish in a diverse and changing world.

General Information:
Aside from love and good example, one of the most enduring gifts you can give your child is a quality education. Education plays such an important role in your child's emotional and intellectual development, so your choice of schools will set patterns that last for his or her entire life

Walden was founded in 1975 as an independent, coeducational school offering a thirteen-year sequence of college preparatory training. The Walden School community provides an atmosphere where academic, cultural, and religious differences are acknowledged, respected and celebrated. Walden School offers an educational program of the highest quality in an atmosphere of support and encouragement.

Walden offers the personal attention available through small class size, along with all the benefits and activities of larger systems. Walden's curriculum is a challenging one that allows each student to reach his or her full potential. The quality, concern and dedication of the Walden School staff are second to none.

Fewer students per teacher allow the faculty the freedom to monitor the social and emotional development of each child, while fostering leadership skills, self-reliance and respect for others. The results are impressive. Traditionally, 100 percent of Walden graduates have been accepted to a college or university of their choice. Walden students receive honor for their participation in programs that include Governor's Scholars, Governor's School for Arts, The Center for Educational Leadership, and the National Scholastic Art Competition. Students participate and excel in regional programs such as Beta Club, National Honor Society, Quick Recall, The Kentucky Youth Assembly and the Kentucky United Nations Assembly.
