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.

Red and Blue Day 2019

May 4, 2019

The tradition continues! This year’s surprise announcement of Red and Blue Day came on May 3. Students played games of cornhole and Spikeball, ran sponge bucket relays and three-legged races on the fields, played dodgeball in the SHAC, and roamed the campus in a scavenger hunt. After a light drizzle became a harder rain, everyone headed into the gym, where students took turns cheering for their teams and faced off in the final contests of the day: several rounds of rock, paper, scissors and tug-of-war. At the end of the afternoon, with a 10-point lead, the blue team carried the day. Many thanks to Student Head of School Ananya Pani, Student Vice Head of School Owen Elton, and Student Council for their efforts over more than a month to plan the event, and to all the faculty and staff who contributed. View photos from the field day in our Red and Blue Day gallery.
