The Clariden Difference

Home of the Cougars! The Clariden School is a dynamic college-preparatory school that challenges each student to achieve excellence within our meaningful, inclusive environment. Within just a half hour of lively and diverse cities like Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington, our central location in Southlake, Texas enables us to provide our students with countless opportunities for field study and research.

With a student-faculty ratio of 8 to 1, our students work closely with their teachers, both in the classroom and in the field.  Clariden students are unbounded thinkers, constantly pushing to solve problems and grow as leaders. Here, students can be greater, curious, creative, challenged, and prepared.

Come join us to learn what it means to be a Cougar.
