"We are all schoolmasters, and our schoolhouse is the universe. To attend chiefly to the desk or schoolhouse while we neglect the scenery in which it is placed is absurd."
~ Henry David Thoreau, Journal, 15 October 1859

Walden Academy was founded in 2011 by a group of teachers and parents who wanted to create a vibrant educational experience that challenges children and motivates them to discover, strive for, and achieve their full personal potential. Walden is committed to high academic and behavioral standards and a full partership between families, students and teachers.  Such a partnership inspires students to even greater heights.
