COVID-19 Updates

Updated 3/2/21 — During the Spring semester the School will continue to adhere to the Fall Opening Plan regarding training, cleaning/disinfectants, hand washing etc., but will work towards opening the campus and expanding student opportunities as guidance from local health officials and the CDC allows. Therefore, we will continue to wear masks, social distance and enforce hand washing with our students and staff.Click here for the Clariden Opening Plan. Click here for the FAQs.

The Clariden School is open for On-Campus AND Live Online instruction for the 2020-21 school year.

Start by Taking Our Virtual Tour / Scheduling an In-Person Tour so we can answer your questions and learn more about your student.

All in-person tours for prospective families are on a limited basis. All visitors must have an appointment prior to coming on campus and must follow the school’s safety protocols, including wearing masks and maintaining physical distancing, in order to ensure everyone’s safety.
