For nearly 100 years, Concord Academy has nurtured every student’s promise as part of a community that needs their intelligence, care, and conviction.

We teach them, challenge them, and get to know who they are and what they dream of becoming.

Guided by CA’s unwavering principle of common trust, we help our students define and pursue their truest self.

This is why Concord Academy has become known as a place where love—of learning, of community, of place—is not too strong a word to describe the core of the CA experience.

“I ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE THAT CA CHANGES LIVES. THE STUDENTS WHO NEED MORE ARE SO OFTEN EMBRACED BY THOSE THAT HAVE MORE TO GIVE.”

Jamie Wade Comstock ’82 P’17 Centennial Campaign Steering Committee

When we bring out our students’ best, we live up to CA’s highest values.

By doing so, we advance their potential to leave a lasting mark on our world.

Our Centennial Campaign is built upon the same core principles.

The Endowment

The Campus

Goal:

$50 Million

The physical campus is the home of singular experiences that shape the lives of every student.

The endowment is the financial expression of the same reality: It affects each student while simultaneously improving every dimension of CA.

These paired campaign priorities make today’s CA better and open the door to CA’s next 100 years.

They advance our deepest commitments, support opportunities across every program, and create new capacities for all that we deliver and aspire to become.

“CA’S APPROACH TO EDUCATION IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN CREATIVE, EXCITING, AND INNOVATIVE, OPENING UNSEEN DOORS FOR STUDENTS TO WALK THROUGH.”

Fay Lampert Shutzer ’65 President, Concord Academy Board of Trustees and Centennial Campaign Co-Chair

The Endowment

GOAL: $25 MILLION

Through contributions to the endowment, donors:

  • Ensure CA reflects the talent and ideas in the world, in lives of every background.
  • Give promising young people opportunities to mature into engaged and confident citizens, with paths determined by passion rather than financial capacity.

  • Set CA on a path to become need-blind.
  • Attract and support exceptional faculty members and develop the skill and talent of the faculty as a whole.
  • Create a cycle of continual investment in educators who make real the commitment that sets learning at CA apart—the emphasis on every student as an individual.

The Campus

GOAL: $25 MILLION

Philanthropic investments in the CA campus will:

  • Make possible a new facility for interdisciplinary and dynamic learning in the arts, with spaces designed for rehearsal, collaboration, exploration, and performance.
  • Allow repurposing of existing spaces to expand programming, unlocking a seamless flow for studying, living, and socializing across campus.
  • Deliver on our mission to open students’ eyes to the beauty of the natural landscape and their responsibility as stewards for the future.
  • Energize and unify the entire CA campus, with the Chapel at its center—exactly where it belongs.

This is CA’s Centennial Campaign. It is historic, it is a call to action, and it is a chance to build upon what matters most to our community.

“THIS CAMPAIGN WILL ENABLE CA TO FULFILL ITS MISSION TO A BROADER COMMUNITY, NOT JUST THIS YEAR, BUT IN PERPETUITY.”

Kevin Parke P’12 ’15 Trustee and Campaign Steering Committee

We know what matters most here—our bond of common trust, our focus on each individual student’s worth and potential, and living up to the ambitions of those who made possible the CA of today.

In achieving the goals of this campaign, we will pass on a stronger academy to the students and graduates of tomorrow and, in fact, to
everyone who will ever call CA home.

“IT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE AND INSPIRE ME THE WAY VERY DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS COME TOGETHER WITH A SHARED SENSE OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE PART OF CA.”

Sarah Yeh Assistant Head of School and Dean of Faculty

All of us who are part of CA today share the crossing of a momentous threshold.

Together, we set in motion a new century that can carry the best of CA forward.
