About

From Cardigan's Motto: Se in viam dare - To start on one's way.

The 2021 school year has been all about endurance and resilience—making goals, finding a steady pace, and setting forth to achieve them. It's harder than usual in uncharted territory with no finish line in sight, but this is exactly when Cardigan shines. Cardigan instills in boys the capacity to persevere with positivity, no matter how difficult or unfamiliar the path.

Gifts to the Annual Fund allow Cardigan to maintain our steady pace, to endure through tumult and deliver the same, consistent education, year after year. With your help, we will continue on our way, ensuring that each Cardigan boy receives exactly what he needs to start on his. Our goal of 211 gifts reflects that—one gift to represent each boy on The Point today. 

Specifically, your gift will fund Cardigan’s immediate and essential needs:

  • Funding for our Surge Center, medical and sanitation supplies, and everything we need to stay healthy and on-mission.
  • Opportunities to increase diversity through financial aid awards to deserving boys from all backgrounds. 
  • Professional development experiences for our faculty to hone instruction techniques in every setting; from the virtual classroom, to the farm, to the science lab.

Reflecting on 75 years, it's remarkable to see how consistent the Cardigan experience has remained and how relevant those lessons are still today. Providing normalcy this year comes with costs greater than ever before, and your gift will ensure that current and future students alike can enjoy the same, life-changing Cardigan experience that has defined our school since 1945.
