As I write to you today, our world is still grappling with the great challenges that COVID-19 has created. Indeed, the situation in many places has unfortunately grown considerably worse since my last letter. I offer my sincere condolences to those of you who have suffered illness or lost loved ones to this pandemic. This disease has caused extraordinary pain, stress, and dismay on so many levels. We must all find ways to focus on hope and the prospects of the recovery that will come, and the opportunities that any crisis presents to assert our powers of caring and goodness. We hope you are leaning on and helping those around you.

Thank You For Attending Family Weekend

From far and near, families came to Concord Academy in October to experience a bit of what it’s like to be a CA student. During Family Weekend, parents attended classes, visited studios, met with teachers and advisors, and cheered on their children’s teams. Families got to know one another better at social gatherings, the annual Community Dinner hosted by CA Parents, and at this year’s first meeting of the CA Parents Book Club. Many attended a CA Parents Council meeting and conversations with the College Counseling Office staff. Others enjoyed open rehearsals of the fall mainstage production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and a Dance 3 class, as well as presentations by the Performing Arts Department of works in progress by a variety of student music groups and CA Dance Project. View photos from Family Weekend here.
