Welcome to the parent page of Concord Academy’s website. This page provides an overview of CA’s parent organization and offers some helpful tips on how to stay informed about what’s happening in the CA community. 

CA Parents. This is the parent’s organization of Concord Academy. If you are a parent or guardian of a CA student, you are automatically a member of CA Parents. If you want to learn about the community or get involved in the life of the school, this organization is the best place to start. CA Parents includes 17 committees and a parents council. The committees organize volunteers to do all kinds of things that support the school — from leading school tours for prospective students, to connecting boarding students with local “host families”, to managing a faculty/staff thank you lunch on Valentine’s Day. If you are a boarding family, there are many ways for you to participate! Boarding families serve on committees for the annual fund, the athletic teams, family weekend dinner, and parent to parent connections, among other things. Please see the Get Involved page of this website to find a complete list and a description of each committee. You may also simply attend one of the many events hosted by CA Parents throughout the year. For example, fall class socials happen in early October as part of parents weekend. Personal invitations to socials are emailed to all parents. Attending one of these gatherings is a great way to meet other parents and learn more about the vibrant, diverse life of this school. 

Stay Informed. Please read the bi-weekly parent newsletter. This publication provides important updates and announcements about school activities and community events. You may also connect with CA on social media by following the school on Facebook and Instagram. Should you have any questions about CA Parents, or how to get involved, please reach out to me or to our wonderful engagement team:
