From far and near, families came to Concord Academy in October to experience a bit of what it’s like to be a CA student. During Family Weekend, parents attended classes, visited studios, met with teachers and advisors, and cheered on their children’s teams. Families got to know one another better at social gatherings, the annual Community Dinner hosted by CA Parents, and at this year’s first meeting of the CA Parents Book Club. Many attended a CA Parents Council meeting and conversations with the College Counseling Office staff. Others enjoyed open rehearsals of the fall mainstage production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a Dance 3 class, as well as presentations by the Performing Arts Department of works in progress by a variety of student music groups and CA Dance Project.
