With beautiful fall weather setting the stage for their visit, Concord Academy families came to campus October 6–8 from near and far to share in the CA experience during Family Weekend. They connected with fellow parents and guardians, visited art studios, met with their children’s advisors, and cheered on CA’s athletic teams. While parents attended classes, students took part in Community and Equity programming in honor of Indigenous Peoples Day. Chorus, chamber music and jazz ensembles, and advanced dance classes held open rehearsals, as did the cast of the fall mainstage production, She Kills Monsters. With opportunities for families both to observe and participate, this tradition is a highlight of every year and an important occasion for building community. We are glad so many families were able to attend and pleased to share this gallery of photos.
