STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"For more than 60 years, Cardigan has specialized in the education of boys during their adolescent years, a time when they are forming opinions, attitudes, and habits that will serve as the foundation of their growth. The adults in our community play a variety of roles every day and deliver an education that we believe best meets the cognitive, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our students. As a former Cardigan student, I believe wholeheartedly in our mission; I know the benefits of a Cardigan education—life lessons that have served me well. I also know that for our efforts to be successful, our boys must be fully engaged in their own growth while having a ton of fun at the same time. If you want to learn more about “The Cardigan Way” and to explore the possibility of joining us as a student, please contact our Admissions Office to begin the conversation. I extend best personal wishes as you search for the right school for you. Sincerely,David J. McCusker, Jr. ’80Headmaster"
