The student perspective makes a difference

Our students understand Walden from a perspective that cannot be imitated; their experience bears firsthand knowledge of our school culture and academic responsibilities. In holding such a position, students are able to truly express and reveal the positive attributes of our wonderful community. They can play a pivotal role in influencing the decisions of prospective families, donors, and current students; in so doing, our students shape the future of Walden.


A Walden Community Ambassador (WCA) brings the positive ideas, insight and influence to the forefront of our outreach initiatives; they are representatives of Walden's best student qualities and embody our values of respect for all others, passion for community involvement, and love of learning. Ambassadors are key players on the Walden admissions team by attending recruitment events and most importantly, serving as Shadow Day Buddies. Being part of the WCA program means participation in some of the most influential school events, including our Open House, Join the Journey tours and Walden Fund breakfast.
