Concord Academy is interested in bright students who love learning in a challenging and supportive environment, who embrace diverse people and ideas, who are curious about the world around them, and who uphold strong community values.

The Admissions Team looks forward to getting to know each applicant and their family through this process. Our application review process is highly individualized and considers the entire application. We have no minimum GPA or test score requirements.  Rather, we carefully consider all pieces of the application including your personal statement, comments from parents or guardians, your interview, letters of recommendation, and additional documents that you might submit.

Thoughtful attention is given to each application by an admissions committee comprised of admissions counselors, current CA faculty, and senior students. 

When reviewing applications, we hope to discover some of the following strengths:

  • Academic performance
  • Intellectual curiosity
  • Character
  • Maturity
  • Community involvement
  • Potential for growth
  • Particular talents, hobbies, and passions
  • The capacity for positive relationships with adults and peers
  • Individual expression and open-mindedness

If you have questions about the application process, call or email the Admissions Office or use our Drop-In Virtual Office Hours.  Information about these drop-in office hours is located on our events page.

Please contact us if you would like to schedule a visit or speak with a member of the Admissions and Financial Aid Office.

The Admissions Office is located in Belknap House at 207 Main Street. You may park across the street in West Lot, just inside the Main Gate in Aloian Circle, or on either side of Main Street.
