As we seek to attract students from geographically diverse regions of the United States and the world, CA’s admissions counselors will travel extensively in the fall. In addition to conducting a small number of off-campus interviews, we also attend fairs, host receptions, and visit schools.
Each fall, we host an Open House for prospective students and their families to learn more about the numerous opportunities available at Concord Academy. Here, you are able to meet students, speak with teachers, and take a tour of campus! Registration is required to attend Open House and is managed through Ravenna, our online admissions system. CA uses Ravenna to manage the entire admissions process and therefore, we require you open a Ravenna account for us to best serve you throughout the process. Once you have established your Ravenna account, you will be able to easily register for Open House. There is no cost associated with establishing this account. Register for Ravenna here.
School fairs provide students with an opportunity to meet an admissions representative, pick up some literature about Concord Academy, get on our mailing list, and ask questions about CA. Not comfortable asking specific questions about Concord or approaching a stranger? Leave the talking to us! Simply stop by a fair table and introduce yourself. You’ll be surprised how easily the conversation will flow.
During the fall, the Admissions Office hosts several off-campus receptions to which area families are invited. A typical reception will introduce families to Concord Academy’s programs and its people. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information about possible receptions in your area.
In addition to fairs and receptions, we also travel to local and distant schools to learn more about the communities from which our applicants come. During these school visits, we meet teachers, tour campuses, and ask questions about school curriculum and philosophy. Most importantly, however, we love chatting formally and informally with prospective students in their native learning communities.
