Cardigan Mountain School A boarding and day school for boys in grades 6 through 9

Cardigan’s 75th Commencement

We are planning an on-campus celebration for Cardigan's 75th Commencement on Sunday, May 16, 2021!

As we look forward to seeing our families on The Point and celebrating the Class of 2021, we ask for your cooperation in following our campus safety protocols, which will include not arriving early, wearing a mask, refraining from group photos, and not entering school buildings. We appreciate your support and partnership as we continue our planning with the health of the entire Cardigan community a priority.

More information (including the commencement speaker, details of the live-stream video feed for those unable to join us in person, and parking & packing logistics) will be coming soon!

Commencement Day Schedule

  • 10:30 a.m. Family of the graduates (limited to 3 please!) arrive on campus
  • 11:00 a.m. Commencement ceremony
  • 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Pack and depart

"To-go" snacks and beverages will be available outdoors following the ceremony.

We will continue to plan for an outdoor, on-campus event and we look forward to seeing you on campus in May. However, please be mindful that COVID conditions are always changing and there is still a possibility that we will need to transition to a remote ceremony should it become unsafe to gather on campus.
