Cardigan Mountain School A boarding and day school for boys in grades 6 through 9

From the Archives Collection

The Cardigan Archives has a rich collection of media from the School’s past. We began sharing digitized items from our collection as part of Cardigan’s 75th Anniversary celebrations in 2020-21, and this work continues.

We invite you to turn back the clock and visit an earlier era: read a publication, browse through short film clips, or settle in to watch a long-form feature. If this content brings a part of your own Cardigan experience to mind, we hope you will share a reflection with us.
