Reunion Weekend 2019: Concord Academy Alumnae/i Reflect and Reconnect

June 12, 2019

From June 7 through June 9, CA welcomed more than 200 alumnae/i and former faculty back to campus. Idyllic spring weather set the tone for a Concord Academy reunion weekend with strong turnout and great energy. With attendees returning from 14 different classes — from the class of 1949 celebrating its 70th reunion to the class of 2014, its fifth — the weekend gave former classmates many opportunities to catch up, reminisce, and explore today’s campus and the town of Concord. Alumnae/i from across the generations had a chance to mingle and learn how others remain involved in the life of the school, and to make new connections with fellow alumnae/i who have carried CA’s values out into the world.
