Cardigan's Class of 2018 Chooses Their Next School

Every year, Kris Langetieg guides the Cardigan Seniors and their families through the search for the next destination in their educational journey. As Director of Secondary School Counseling, Mr. Langeteig knows it’s about fit more than anything else. It’s a long process, beginning with taking Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) in April of their eighth grade year.

After a year of school visits, applications, acceptances, revisits and final choices, the Class of 2018 achieved some of the best results in recent school history. Cardigan boys will attend 36 different secondary schools in nine different states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Virginia.

Mr. Langeteig is understandably proud of this group. “Schools throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic region are eager to recruit our applicants,” he says, “but it is encouraging that we are seeing increased interest from as far away as California.”

Eighty-four percent of graduating Seniors will attend one of their top three choice schools. Many of our boys will know at least one person where they’re going, as 20 schools will welcome more than two members of the Class. Cardigan students will attend four schools that have not been represented on our matriculation lists for the last few years: Baylor School, Brunswick School, Groton School, and Phillips Exeter Academy.

The complete list of secondary schools for the Class of ‘18 is below. The entire Cardigan community is proud of them, and we wish them the very best at their next stop and beyond!
