Cardigan Mountain School is an all-boys junior boarding school with an enrollment of 220 students typically coming from 20-25 states and 12-15 foreign countries. In addition, we offer a co-ed summer program for boys and girls ages 8-15.
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. Our PEAKS (Personalized Education for the Acquisition of Knowledge and Skills) Department helps each boy come to understand his own unique learning style and develop his organizational, time management and study skills. For our non-native English-speaking students we offer ESL instruction from intermediate through advanced levels. 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 point of our overall program.
During the spring trimester of Grade 8, the students begin our comprehensive secondary school placement process which continues until final decisions are in the following March, with many of our graduates matriculated at some of the most selective schools in the US, including Andover, Choate, Deerfield, Exeter, Hotchkiss, Lawrenceville, Middlesex, Milton, St. Paul’s, and Taft.
