Spotlight on Education: Walden Community School

Walden Community School is an out-of-the-box, non-profit school with a commitment to encouraging students to reach their highest potential, while developing academic, social and emotional skills in a collaborative environment. The curriculum is hand-crafted for the students by using brain-based research to create a unique educational experience. Our best-of-practice school combines elements of various progressive educational systems, including Waldorf, Montessori, Reggio Emila and Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences.

Walden Community School was established in 2002 by Dr. Carol Mikulka as a non-profit, non-sectarian, private, independent school. Our community of learners honor each student’s uniqueness, by uncovering inquisitiveness, creativity and intrinsic motivation. 

“My daughter has truly blossomed as both a person and a student as a result of the academically rigorous and warm social environment that Walden provides,” says Heather McClelland, a WCS parent. “Dr. Mikulka’s visionary approach of addressing the whole child and truly caring for the academic and social development of every child is priceless.”

The school is accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvancEd and SACS). Full-time and part-time programs for Early Kindergarten (K4) through 12th grade are available.
