Student Life

Bonding with teammates over a win, a loss, or just a great practice. Performing solo (gulp!) or with an ensemble of singers, musicians, or actors. Joining with friends to participate in a meaningful community service activity. Learning about another culture with help from a classmate. Taking a few hours to just have fun with a bunch of other guys who also like adventure movies, funny contests, snowball fights, pizza eating, and…(you fill in the blank). These are among the many opportunities available to every one of Cardigan’s students—some 225 boys from various states and countries—who form a dynamic and close-knit community. Life at Cardigan is active, interesting, healthy, fun, and fulfilling—it’s all part of educating the whole boy the Cardigan Way.
