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.

On the morning of August 29, the Elizabeth B. Hall Chapel was filled with a new kind of energy. Concord Academy’s 402 students, along with faculty and staff, gathered to begin the school’s 100th academic year—and to begin CA’s second century together.
Concord Academy is pleased to welcome several new members of the faculty and staff for the 2022–23 academic year. Please help us welcome these new teachers, coaches, and other members of CA’s adult community.
