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

Courses of Study

Students inside the classroom

Each student is required to take the six major courses each year at Cardigan, which include history, English, math, science, a world language (French, Latin, Spanish, or ESL), and Personalized Education for the Acquisition of Knowledge and Skills (PEAKS). To enhance the academic experience of the boys, we also require that they take two or three art electives each year depending on grade level; offerings include visual arts, music, theater arts, and woodworking. Participation in the Gates Invention & Innovation Competition program is required for our grade six and seven students and is optional in grades eight and nine. In consideration of the diverse profile of our student body, students are also obliged to take part in Cardigan's yearlong Global Leadership class.
