The Cardigan Communications Office is here to help you and your family stay connected and well-informed about all the inspiring and important moments happening here on The Point and within the greater Cardigan Mountain School community.
The Communications Office uses a variety of digital tools to spread the word so each member of the Cardigan family can stay informed in the way that’s most convenient for them. This guide will provide an overview of Cardigan Mountain School communications—and the ways in which you can choose to engage in our vibrant program from wherever you are in the world!
Our Weekly Newsletter: To The Point
This fun and informative newsletter is distributed weekly via email while school is in session. Every issue contains stories about what’s happening here on campus and includes links to photo galleries, videos, and link to important resources like the “Plan of the Week.” All parents and students are automatically subscribed to To The Point.
Our School Magazine: Cardigan Chronicle
Published twice each year, this is the School’s signature print publication that provides feature articles and alumni class notes, updates on academic programs and campus projects, photographs from events that happen throughout the year, and much more. All enrolled families are automatically subscribed to the Cardigan Chronicle. You can see the feature articles from the most recent issue of the Chronicle on the Chronicle page.
Follow Cardigan on Social Media
The Communications team manages a number of social media accounts where we share all the moments that make the Cardigan experience so powerful and unique.
Cardigan Media and Our Commitment to Privacy & Safety
Cardigan Mountain School frequently uses photographs of students in various publications, including our To The Point newsletter, the Cardigan Chronicle magazine, the School’s website and social media pages, and other school publications such as athletic programs, drama production programs, etc.
Students are generally not identified by name in these communications. However, occasionally and when appropriate, students may be identified by name (usually in connection with the earning of an academic or athletic award or recognition.) The 2023-24 General Registration Form, located in Cardigan's Veracross Family Portal, provides an opportunity for parents to “opt-out” of the identification of your son by name in all School media. If you have any specific questions or concerns about privacy, please do not hesitate to contact Director of Communications Chris Adams (email@example.com.)
