Concord Academy Turns 100

A Centennial Celebration for All

Marking this momentous occasion, Concord Academy has planned a series of Centennial events that began in April 2022. Festivities will continue throughout the 2022–23 academic year.

CA’s Centennial celebrations illuminate our history, honor our mission, and celebrate the values and traditions that have animated our school for 100 years. We hope these experiences will bring together members of our community from every era, and that alongside CA’s students, alumnae/i, parents, faculty, staff, and friends, you will engage in ways that bring you meaning and joy.

Upcoming Centennial Events

Come Celebrate With Us

Chapel Challenge
October 15, 2022

Mark your calendar for the next major Centennial event: the Chapel Challenge! Join us for this special day to celebrate the story of the Elizabeth B. Hall Chapel, a place that represents the heart of Concord Academy. 

Retracing the journey that brought the Chapel from a small town in New Hampshire to Concord in 1956, there are so many ways to get involved, whether running the duathlon along the 80 mile trip from the original Chapel site, to kicking back at the Community BBQ on campus. The Chapel Challenge is for everyone and we can’t wait to see you  there!

Registration will be available on August 12
