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.
A year of challenge and hope concluded in a joyously familiar way on Friday, June 11, when Concord Academy honored the class of 2021. Eighty-six graduates were celebrated in the Academy Garden along with 11 classmates who joined them by livestream.
From visual and performing arts to senior projects and Tech Expo, take a look at some of the amazing projects and performances CA students shared at the end of the 2020–21 school year.
CA’s winter 2021 mainstage production, Baltimore, was presented virtually on May 22 and 23. Written after the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the play tackles a racist incident on a predominantly white college campus and the 12 hours that follow. Playwright Kirsten Greenidge worked with the cast during rehearsals and took part in a pre-show discussion.
