Awaken Your Child's Bright Potential

The mission of Carden Arbor View School is to provide the highest quality education of the whole child using the Carden curriculum and philosophy - to educate with joy, growth, enthusiasm, dignity, and respect.

A kindergarten - eighth-grade private school located in Upland on the border of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. Serving students from the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Chino Hills, Ontario, Pomona, Claremont, Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga, Etiwanda, Fontana, and Rialto. Named one of the best private schools by Inland Empire Magazine, Carden Arbor View School utilizes the classical curriculum created by Mae Carden, a 20th century educator. Offering small class sizes, at Carden, we focus on teaching the whole child through individualized instruction.
Applications for the 2024-25 school year are now available. 

" THANK YOU to the teachers, administration, and staff for creating a dynamic environment for our kids to learn, grow, and thrive. This has been, hands down, the very best place for my daughter for the the last 9 years. We have been truly blessed to be a part of Carden Arbor View."

"Carden sets the groundwork for children's learning to unfold as it should. The Carden Instructional Method and philosophy are really the biggest parts of why we chose this school. The curriculum is very rich and beautiful. They don't just brush over the surface; things are discussed in depth."

"My student never talked about school when he came home. After his first day at Carden Arbor View School, he couldn't stop talking about his day."
