On Saturday, September 5, the Student Life Office welcomed more than 70 new CA students to campus in person for Orientation. Students participated in a number of exercises and activities designed to help them understand Concord Academy culture, and they also met their classmates and fellow new CA students. Some highlights of the day included speed friending on the quad, an all-campus scavenger hunt, and a small-group debrief of Orientation and the first week of school. On hand as guides were 25 Orientation leaders — returning CA students excited to share their love of the school — as well as a number of CA faculty, staff, and administrators. We hope our new students felt the warmth and excitement the CA community offers. Welcome, new CA community members!
