What do you like most about Concord Academy?

My favorite thing about CA is the way our community honors individuality. I have felt encouraged to be completely myself here, while constantly getting the chance to meet people who are completely different from me!

What do you do at CA?

In addition to being a Head Tour Guide, I am also a Peer Mentor in a freshman seminar class and a Head Orientation Leader. I am a captain of cross-country and ski team. Last spring I acted in my first theater production! I also love taking guitar lessons and visual arts classes at CA.
