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!
On an idyllic October afternoon, Concord Academy claimed the sixth consecutive Chandler Bowl victory over league rival Pingree School. Against stiff competition, CA’s 10 fall sports teams competed well, once again winning the overall contest in dramatic fashion, with the outcome decided in the final game of the day.
Concord Academy couldn’t have picked a more beautiful fall day to host the Centennial Chapel Challenge. This October 15 event, one of several celebratory gatherings throughout CA’s 100th academic year, encouraged CA community members to get active together and celebrated the unique history of the Elizabeth B. Hall Chapel.
While parents and guardians attended Family Weekend classes on Friday, October 7, CA students engaged in Community and Equity Programming in honor of Indigenous Peoples Day. Concord Academy welcomed back acclaimed author, storyteller, and educator Larry Spotted Crow Mann to share his music and culture.
