We Know Middle School Boys

The years from grade 6 through 9 are an essential time for boys to develop leadership, deepen their talents, and master the skills to learn for life.

From the academic curriculum to athletics to dormitory life, we have designed a program that is tailored for boys in these crucial years. The spirit of brotherhood that defines Cardigan empowers every boy to achieve his best. 

The teachers who are your son's mentors, advisors, and coaches, and the classmates who will become his enduring friends form the heart of the Cardigan experience. Together they will take on new challenges, discover their unique strengths, and learn how to give back to the community.

Watch: Why Cardigan?

Cardigan is extraordinary in every way imaginable. This all-boys school attracts families from all over the world. They live by core values. The facilities and staff are excellent. My son entered in sixth grade and will graduate in the ninth, then on to secondary school. He is beyond prepared, but most importantly he is happy. He has thrived and made friendships that will last his lifetime. Academically the school is rigorous and supportive…An amazing community on a breathtakingly beautiful campus.
