Dear Concord Academy Community,

The campus is quiet. Looking across a sun-filled quad at a scene that would normally be filled with students and teachers, I see instead signs of spring — daffodils and crocuses — reaching for the sun. 

Beneath the quiet, there is a thrum of online activity. People are joining virtual meetings to reimagine classes and chapels. Parents are connecting, and supporting not only their children but others as well. Our alumnae/i have been reaching out with words, with offers, and with thoughts. Our entire extended community has stepped up in truly remarkable, inspiring ways.

It is at these times that I am reminded of how caring is core to the foundation of this school — and of how truly inspiring our community is.

I took a moment to reflect on this, and I wanted to share that video with you now:

Please know this: During these uncertain times, we are here for you. If you are in need, please let us know how we can help. 

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Take care.
