Welcome to Admissions!

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Cardigan. We know that the process of choosing a school is not an easy one, and we want to do all that we can to provide you with the information you need in order to make this important decision.

Like our colleagues in the classroom, we in the Admissions Office are educators, and our goal is to help each prospective student and his family find the school that is right for them…and of course, we hope that school is Cardigan!

Our program offers boys wonderful opportunities for academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth and development at a crucial stage of their adolescence. Our students interact with the adults in our community throughout each day both in and outside of the classroom, and the relationships developed through these interactions provide our boys with strong mentoring and positive role models in all aspects of their lives. 

The best way to get a feel for what the School is all about is for you and your son to come to campus for a personal visit. You will have the opportunity to tour our facilities, meet with an admissions officer, and meet and speak with current students and faculty members. 

We are here to help you in this process. Please contact any of us with questions. If you would like more information sent to you, please fill out our online inquiry form.

Welcome to Cardigan Admissions

One of the things I love about this school is that we work with all kinds of kids at different levels. Middle school boys have their foot firmly in childhood and one foot reaching for the next step. We recognize that tension and that growth, and we celebrate it.
