About Concord Academy
Concord Academy is an independent, coeducational boarding and day school renowned for world-class faculty, passionate students, and graduates who make their mark on the world. Founded in 1922, Concord Academy has long balanced high academic standards with a focus on educating the whole student through the arts, athletics, and engagement in the world. Our community thrives on a love of learning, thanks to the care and partnership of teachers who support our students as individuals and challenge them every day to think critically and creatively.
Innovative teaching drives our wide-as-you-can-dream curriculum. Our rigorous approach to the sciences, arts, and humanities is infused with opportunities for intellectual growth, experimentation, and hands-on learning. CA students are honest, dedicated, and self-driven — some of the brightest, most curious, and inventive young people you’re likely to encounter. Within a structured framework, our experienced teachers afford them the flexibility to learn as they do best — while achieving personal goals, whether building a robot or directing a mainstage performance. Creative problem-solving and creative expression are at the core of the CA e...xperience.
Our 39-acre campus on Main Street in Concord, Mass., is home to nearly 400 students in grades 9 through 12 from nearby towns and around the globe. We bring students out into the world, and the world to our campus. In our close-knit community, we prize collaboration over competition. Our daily interactions are shaped by uncommon levels of trust. At CA, we do more than embrace diverse perspectives and backgrounds. We foster independent thinking. We invite passionate dialogue and debate. We believe that living attentively, questioning assumptions, and speaking one’s own truth are essential elements of an engaged and active learning experience.
When our students graduate, they’re prepared not only for college but also for lives of service and impact. Our alumnae/i are authors and ambassadors, entrepreneurs and engineers, dancers and doctors. This is a place where students love to learn, where creativity and trust are abundant natural resources, and where the history and literature of New England enrich us every day.
