Description

Cardigan Mountain School is an all-boys junior boarding school with an enrollment of 225 students typically coming from 20-25 states and 12-15 foreign countries. Through a traditional, pre-college preparatory academic program that is both challenging and supportive along with extensive co-curricular offerings in the arts and athletics, we prepare middle school boys for success in secondary school and beyond. The School’s core values of compassion, integrity, respect, and courage are at the center of our residential community and fully integrated into the day-to-day life of students and faculty alike, and leadership and global awareness are also key focal points of our overall program. During the spring trimester of Grade 8 the students begin our comprehensive secondary school placement process which continues through March of Grade 9, with many of our graduates matriculating at some of the most selective schools in the US, including Brooks School, Kent School, Lawrenceville School, Middlesex School, Phillips Exeter Academy and St. Paul’s School.
