Our Mission

Walden is a place where social, emotional and academic growth are valued equally, a place where students see possibilities, make meaningful choices, take risks, and emerge with a stronger sense of identity, belonging and  purpose.  It is a place where critical thought, creativity and independence are nurtured; where empathy, cultural awareness and tolerance are valued. Our purpose is to develop capable, globally minded citizens who are dedicated to making positive contributions to society.
