Aspirations

For nearly 100 years, Concord Academy has cultivated a remarkable reputation for intellectual rigor, deep engagement, creativity, and innovation. As we look to the next hundred years, we will honor this history by investing boldly in our future.

We are excited to introduce to you create + innovate: The Centennial Campaign for Concord Academy. It is a blueprint for academic, programmatic, and capital priorities that will affect every student and every teacher. It does not seek to reinvent, but builds on our strengths, expands our offerings, and focuses on enhancing CA’s distinctive living and learning environment — an environment that makes us all proud.

At this moment in time, as education is shifting, we share a conviction that CA’s core values — love of learning, curiosity and collaboration, and abiding commitment to each other — have never been more relevant. Every day, from students, teachers, alumnae/i, parents, and board members alike, we witness the power of CA to shape lives, build enduring relationships, and truly make a difference in the world.

Since the board approved the Centennial Plan in May 2014, the response to this campaign has been overwhelmingly positive. We are humbled and deeply grateful for this partnership in bringing these priorities to life. We invite you to read more, and to join the Concord Academy community across the world in this exciting work to build the school’s future.
