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!
