NCAA Transgender Swimmer Schuyler Bailar Brings His Inspiring Story to Concord Academy

May 21, 2019

Why do we give attention to people who are coming out as trans or LGBTQ? How does doing so either normalize or sensationalize their existence? These are some of the candid, hard-to-frame questions that Concord Academy students had the opportunity to ask on May 16 of visiting speaker Schuyler Bailar, the first openly transgender athlete to compete on a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 men’s team.

What Are Community Weekends?

August 19, 2018

Given upcoming student activities over the next two weekends, we want to provide some context around Community Weekends at CA. Community Weekends are designated weekends when the Student Life Office hosts programming that has historically attracted many students. We designate these weekends Community Weekends so families can plan for times when their child(ren) will spend at least a portion of their weekend enjoying the activities at CA and engaging with the community. We continue this emphasis to align with research that engagement with the school community outside the classroom creates positive academic and socioemotional outcomes for students. This year, Community Weekends will be September 7-9, September 14-16, November 9-11, March 29-31, and May 10-12.

Health Center During Registration

August 19, 2018

The nurses will be available in the Health Center (SHAC main floor) one hour prior to registration for medication drop-off and questions. To access the Health Center prior to the start of registration, please enter the building via the side door on the pool side of the building.

Per school policy, all controlled medications must be kept in the Health Center and administered to students by the nurses. This includes ADHD medications such as Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, etc. taken by boarders and day students while at school. The nurses will also oversee the administration of psychotropic medications (such as antidepressants) to boarders, so those medications must also be dropped off in the Health Center.
