Henry Fairfax
Head of School

For 100 years, Concord Academy has nurtured students in a community that values their intelligence, care, and conviction. Guided by CA’s mission and the enduring principle of common trust, students are able to define and pursue their truest selves here, both as individuals and as members of a wider world that needs their vision, optimism, and leadership. When we bring out the best in our students, we advance their potential to leave a lasting mark, wherever their paths take them.

The Concord Academy Centennial Campaign is built upon the same core principles. The goals we aim to achieve will forward our deepest commitments to the people who live and learn at CA. This historic effort will create new capacities to support all that we aspire to become.

Campaign Priorities

 

Developed by school leadership and CA’s Board of Trustees, the Concord Academy Centennial campaign has two clear priorities.

144 donors.
$35.2 million raised.
$50 million goal.

Centennial Arts Center

$25 million

The Centennial Arts Center—and all that happens in this building—will inspire students to think deeply, imagine boldly, and bring personal energy and expression to their work. The possibilities presented by this new space are multifaceted—theater, stagecraft, dance, choral and chamber music, jazz, digital arts, film production, dramatic performance and creative composition will have a new home here.

Endowment

$25 million

Building CA’s endowment is a necessary investment that provides long term health and sustainability for the school and its community, now and into the future. CA’s endowment must grow substantially in order to attract and support exceptional faculty and students and to make a CA education accessible regardless of financial need. 

Volunteer Leadership

 

Every student who attends CA benefits from the foresight and investment of the many volunteers who understood the value of a CA education. It is because of these visionaries—teachers, staff, trustees, parents, alums, and friends—that CA is able to deliver a transformative experience. With this campaign, our Co-Chairs and Steering Committee reaffirm what we believe and what we have learned, mindful of what we can become. We all have a part in CA’s ever-unfolding story, and we invite you to join us as we write the next chapter.
