Life at Cardigan is active, interesting, fulfilling, healthy, and fun.

Cardigan Mountain School offers a close-knit community that prepares middle school boys—in mind, body, and spirit—for responsible and meaningful lives in a global society.

“Student life” looks and feels different for every student at every school, but at Cardigan there is a certain magic that happens when an aspiring group of boys from all over the world, with high expectations of character and purpose, come together and share a common experience: our students call it brotherhood. Whether it is building habits to keep a tidy living space, helping out in our local community, or practicing servant leadership through a campus job, student life is all about learning to be independent, resilient, helpful, and respectful citizens.

What we have here at Cardigan is a family that cares about us and our futures. I am proud to be part of this community and proud to call Cardigan my home.

Bryce Terry ’20, 2019-20 School Leader

    Plan of the Week

    Cardigan students accomplish many things every day. By the the time they go to bed, they've had classes, advisory, athletics, study halls, and more. Our Plan of the Week details the daily schedule and is a vital resource to the students and faculty alike.
