Sample Schedule 1

At Concord Academy, no two student schedules are the same. Our block scheduling offers flexibility for pursuing academic interests and personal passions.

Students love CA’s block schedule. Most courses meet three times weekly: twice for 80 minutes and once for 45. This gives faculty the flexibility to incorporate a broad range of academic tools — from labs and technology to mock trials, historic reenactments, and field trips. Purposeful pacing allows time for reflection and discovery, participation and purpose — a fully engaged experience for both day students and boarding students.
