During Family Week in November 2020, CA Shared Highlights of Students’ and Teachers’ Ongoing Engagement
In its first virtual Family Week, Concord Academy welcomed parents connecting from near and far to experience a bit of what it’s like to be a CA student this year. Families joined classes, attended a Community and Equity Office presentation and a special Veterans Day program, and were treated to a presentation of some exceptional student performances — works in progress in music, dance, and theater.
On Saturday, September 5, the Student Life Office welcomed more than 70 new CA students to campus in person for Orientation. We hope our new students felt the warmth and excitement the CA community offers. Welcome, new CA community members!
