2021–22 Orientation Welcomes New Students to CA
From Friday, August 27, through Monday, August 30, the Student Life Office hosted Orientation for over 100 new CA students and families. New community members gathered on campus to learn about CA’s culture and traditions and to prepare for the school year ahead. Students in attendance connected with fellow classmates and Orientation Leaders, returning students who welcomed newcomers to campus and shared their CA expertise. Students also met their advisors, heard from administrators, and engaged in Community and Equity programming. Other activities included group games around campus and a celebratory square dance in the Academy Garden. We look forward to starting the year with these wonderful additions to our community. Welcome to CA!
Through Concord Academy’s InSPIRE (Interested Students Pursuing Internship Research Experiences) program, CA students have opportunities to contribute to ongoing research while working at some of the Boston area’s leading scientific institutions. Over eight weeks this summer, four CA seniors were matched with mentors in their field of interest and gained invaluable hands-on experience in robotics, genomic medicine, and cognitive science. The students gave presentations to the CA campus community on September 15.
Interim Head of School Sarah Yeh P’24 gave this chapel talk on September 1, 2021, the first of the 2021–22 school year.
On August 31, CA students, faculty, and staff gathered in the Elizabeth B. Hall Chapel to begin the 2021–22 academic year, with a convocation address by Science Department Head Amy Kumpel.
