CA Celebrates the Class of 2020
On August 12, 2021, Concord Academy welcomed back many members of the class of 2020 to campus. For these recent graduates, who had ended their CA careers with a livestreamed virtual commencement ceremony, it was an opportunity to reunite and celebrate their class’s unique place in CA history.
Family members and several faculty and staff were able to join in the festivities and applaud the accomplishments and spirit of the class of 2020. The celebration took place in the Academy Garden, giving these young alumnae/i a chance to take their place on the Senior Steps.
With a food truck, cupcakes, and lawn games, the summer evening event was a chance for 2020 classmates to reconnect with one another and with CA before they headed back to college. We were grateful so many could make it!

When a determination was made to hold reunion virtually this spring because of the pandemic, we knew we wanted to offer a range of events and experiences to facilitate connections not only among this year’s reunion classes (class years ending in 1 and 6) but also among all alumnae/i who might have an opportunity to connect virtually with Concord Academy from homes around the world. Beginning in mid-May and concluding in mid-June 2021, a full slate of events was offered.
All Concord Academy alumnae/i were invited to tune in to CA’s third annual Alumnae/i Assembly, which took place virtually on June 9, 2021. An evolution of the former annual meeting, this annual assembly offers every member of the alumnae/i community a touchpoint for remaining involved or reconnecting with the school — its aim is to make CA an ongoing and relevant part of our graduates’ lives.
