Carden Arbor View School is accredited by the Carden Educational Foundation, the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS), and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). 

First accredited by CAIS during the 1994–95 school year, Carden Arbor View School has received maximum six year accreditation terms following the first three year term awarded over 15 years ago. The school’s most recent accreditation, conducted in the 2015-2016 school year, commends the faculty for their excellent teaching, genuine enthusiasm for the students, and clear support for the philosophy and mission of the school and the students for their poised, polite, and confident manner that strongly reflects the philosophy of the school.

The school’s administrative and governing bodies were also commended for demonstrating clear vision and stewardship, as was the school community for their commitment to fostering good will, enhancing communication, and enthusiastically supporting school activities. 

Dignity implies not only self-respect but respect for every other person as well. Mae Carden
