Reunion Giving

Reunion and Alum Weekend is a moment to rekindle friendships, reminisce about shared experiences, and reaffirm CA’s place in your story. We hope you’ll be part of this special weekend, reconnecting with classmates and other CA alums across all decades.

Another way to honor your upcoming reunion is by making a reunion gift to the 2023–24 CA Annual Fund. CA’s alums have always worked together to support and advance our school—you are part of that legacy! CA’s $3.1 million Annual Fund provides 8% of the school’s core operating budget, including mission-critical financial aid grants for 112 families.

In honor of your reunion, will you consider contributing to the Annual Fund? Each and every gift, regardless of amount, confirms your belief in CA’s mission and what it makes possible for every student.

You can also consider starting a new reunion tradition: contribute this reunion year and sustain your support for the next four years, leading up to your next milestone reunion. CA needs its alum community to step forward in greater numbers and with consistency to keep CA going strong in its second century. This year, over 1,000 CA alums are celebrating a milestone reunion. Collectively, you can make a big difference for our students. Can we count on you?

Additional Information

Campus Facilities and Area Transportation

The weekend can be a mini-vacation for the whole family. Swim in CA’s pool, canoe on the river, or use the tennis courts, fitness room, and fields. Train schedules will be available for trips into Cambridge and Boston. Take advantage of all that the Boston area has to offer on your own or with your spouse, partner, guests, and children!

Visit Concord
Visit Concord is a great resource for helping you make the most of your time back in Concord. Be sure to stop by the Visitor Center on Main Street while you’re here! We are pleased to be partnered with them to offer tour opportunities for Reunion and Alum Weekend attendees.
