A day in the life looks different for each Cardigan boy; their experiences and their ways of navigating through every day are as diverse as the cultures and backgrounds they represent. This extended photo essay attempts to document some of this diversity, as well as the strong and engaging forces that unify the boys—and the adults.
In October we set out to document a day in the life of Cardigan Mountain School, curious to see what through-lines would appear and what themes would bubble to the surface. The plan was simple. Put cameras in the hands of faculty, staff, and students and ask them to document their lives. The day was Friday, October 8, and over 2,800 photos recorded the perspectives of over a dozen individuals.
A day at Cardigan begins with a weather report, delivered in person by the forces of nature—through one’s own eyes, skin, and senses—as one heads to the Cardigan Commons for breakfast.
When I began to brainstorm different themes for this issue of the Chronicle in August, everyone was looking forward with anticipation to the boys’ return to campus and to the start of what we hoped would be a routine school year.
This past summer two Cardigan Cougars participated in the Under Armour All-American Senior Game held on July 31 in Baltimore, MD. Both representing the South, Kade Goldberg ’18 played at midfield, while Tucker Mullen ’18 played attack.
In July, David Gregory P’18 took over the leadership of Cardigan’s Board of Trustees, accepting the reins from the capable hands of Jeremy Crigler ’79, who had been the chair since 2019. Mr. Gregory shares his reflections as he continues his years of service to Cardigan.
Alumni coach our student-athletes as Cameron “Cam” McCusker ’10 takes over Cardigan’s Hockey Program, and Jonathan Castillo ’06 heads the Basketball Program.
