For their senior projects this year, members of the class of 2022 took on a wide array of independent projects with faculty advisors, including reexamining health care inequities within prison settings, building an electric go-kart, mapping the physics of a pirouette, and creating a cookbook with sustainable recipes.

Seniors presented their work in May in the SHAC atrium for fellow students, faculty, and staff. Projects ran the gamut from an electric go-kart built by Arthur Donohue ’22 with a max speed of 28 mph to the digitalization of CA’s archives by Yewon Kang ’22 and Melanie Tapia ’22, whose mixed-media “Concord Academy Digital Archive” comprised archival photographs and narratives of how CA has changed over its 100 year history. 

With a mix of formats and approaches, participants had many ways to engage with the seniors’ work. Emmy McCormack ’22 designed a trivia game to go alongside the sex education curriculum she designed, while Quinn Harnden ’22 and Sam Weitzman-Kurker ’22 invited participation to explore their findings from studying ADHD in Massachusetts schools and Narn Rojvachiranonda ’22 demonstrated a redesign of Boston’s MBTA transit maps.

This Is the Year: Help Close the CA Centennial Campaign

The Concord Academy Centennial Campaign is our great opportunity to celebrate CA’s role in shaping the lives of young people. Across generations, our graduates demonstrate over and over that those who live and learn at CA develop into forces for good, magnifying this school’s impact in the world. We must continue to serve and encourage all of our students, and to see them for who they are and who they can become. This is our charge and our joyful responsibility.
