“These guys get relationships,” says Director of Secondary School Counseling Kris Langetieg P’24. “They are engaged in the community and are committed to building each other up.”

Cardigan’s ninth graders have been working hard this year and with a little over a month until graduation, they are finalizing their plans for next year. They’ll be spreading out across the country and across the globe, committing recently to 35 schools in 10 different states and three countries. An impressive six students will be attending St. Mark’s School in Massachusetts; five will be attending Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire and four each will be attending Berkshire School in Massachusetts and Suffield Academy in Connecticut. New to the list this year is the Cate School in California, as well as Lancing College in the United Kingdom.

“This is a really impressive list, but what is not immediately obvious is that Cardigan’s ninth graders continue to seek schools that I believe most importantly fit them well,” says Mr. Langetieg. “These students and their families found their way to Cardigan, and as they prepare to graduate, they are looking for the next community where they will thrive.”

With equal strengths in academics and athletics, Mr. Langetieg says these boys will be strong additions to any secondary school. But, he predicts, they will also contribute to community engagement and care. “Rather than grand gestures,” he says, “at Cardigan these boys have focused on the ‘little things.’ Their investment in mentoring younger students, honoring their commitments, and celebrating the rewards that come with hard work and character has enabled them to serve as incredible role models. You do not have to speculate on their motivations because their actions make them clear; they want to make a difference and recognize that it is best achieved through collaboration.”
