Campaign Accomplishments

Wallach Groundbreaking Ceremony

The remarkable accomplishments of The Campaign for Cardigan 2020 to date have placed our school in a position of strength. As we look ahead to the School’s 75th anniversary and beyond, we remain committed to achieving the ideals set out by our shared mission and core values. I am inspired to lead this community as we all strive to grow as exceptional educators and citizens.
