Adaptability and Empathy: Congratulations and Advice to the Class of 2018 from Commencement Speaker Dame Vivian Hunt, DBE, ’85

June 06, 2018

Concord Academy’s 96th Commencement exercises on the Elizabeth B. Hall Chapel lawn marked a new beginning for seniors. The class of 2018 and their families had much to celebrate, and much to be inspired by. In her Commencement address, Dame Vivian Hunt, DBE, ’85 encouraged the graduates to be ambitious. “Empathy allows you to think big and to scale really good ideas outward to many thousands of people,” she said. “Empathy means aiming for something bigger than a single good outcome. Only then can you create change instead of just adapting to it.” Read more and watch her remarks in full.

On behalf of the entire CA community, we want to thank Kristan First P’18, ’20 for her dedication, leadership, and endless positivity as president of CA Parents for the past two years.

CA Parents and the community at large are stronger than ever before because of Kristan’s tenacity and spirit. As we welcome Kerry Hoffman P’14, ’20 as the next president of CA Parents, we want to take this moment to thank Kristan for providing such a strong foundation for Kerry, and for all future parent leaders. Thank you, Kristan, for all you have done for CA!

Concord Academy 2017-18 Photo Gallery

June 4, 2018

Throughout the year, we document student life at CA, from Convocation to Commencement. To that end, we have created a gallery of photos from this school year of particular interest to parents — all in one place, which you can bookmark and return to as we add end-of-year images. From arts and athletics, from Formal to Field Day, the gallery is organized into albums by subject and event. From any individual photo, you can download high-resolution copies by clicking on the down arrow in the lower right-hand corner. Or you can download the entire set by clicking on the large down arrow at the top of the alum. You can also buy prints in a variety of sizes and formats, including phone cases and more. (Note that we have priced these items so that they are essentially at cost.) View the photos here. We hope you enjoy them!
