Students and alumnae/i pose for a group photo on the steps of the Math and Arts Center on February 22 during the Alumnae/i and Students of Color Conference at Concord Academy.
On February 22, Concord Academy hosted its annual Alumnae/i and Students of Color Conference. More than 20 individuals — 12 students and 11 alumnae/i — took part in the event. A panel discussion took up the topics of race and equity at CA across decades, and in small group breakout sessions alumnae/i and students discussed the influence of a CA education on the college experience, considered a sense of belonging at CA, and reminisced about what drew them to this school.
Congratulations to Concord Academy’s fall teams on another successful fall season capped off with a sixth consecutive Chandler Bowl victory. Relive the excitement in a news recap on boys varsity soccer, girls varsity soccer, girls varsity field hockey, cross-country, girls varsity volleyball, and junior varsity programs. Go Green!
When Richard Selden P’23 spoke at an all-school assembly at Concord Academy on November 16, he acknowledged how much CA students want to change the world. “No matter what your academic and career interests are, you can find a way to tie them into fighting for social justice,” he said. Selden shared how he turned his passion for molecular biology into a rapid DNA technology that is making the world a safer place.
This Thanksgiving season, the CA students involved in the Lawrence-Concord Action Partnership (LCAP) aren’t just giving thanks—they’re also giving back. Together the student-led initiative has a goal of fighting food insecurity in the local community. LCAP is making a meaningful difference through its work with the Lazarus House nonprofit organization by volunteering in the soup kitchen and transitional housing program.
