The Alumnae/i Association is pleased to announce Concord Academy’s 2020 Virtual Reunion. Please join CA classmates and friends for a series of special gatherings and activities from the safety and comfort of your home. All Concord Academy alumnae/i are invited to join. While we are disappointed that we are not able to be together on campus this June, we look forward to June 2021 when we will celebrate both the 0’s and 5’s as well as the 1’s and 6’s. This reunion celebration will prove to be the biggest and best yet!
Many thanks to CA’s Alumnae/i Steering Committee and reunion committees for helping to bring this idea to life!

Visit CA’s Virtual Classroom with Stephanie Manzella P’14 ’17 ’18, History Faculty, and Ayres Stiles-Hall P’23 ’24, English Faculty
Are you wondering about the spring 2020 virtual academic experience at CA? Would you like to know how faculty reimagined their teaching practices during COVID-19? Join fellow alumnae/i for this lunchtime program for a glimpse into two virtual classrooms and a discussion about distance learning.
Stephanie will provide an overview of the Scramble for Africa and the Congo Free State and look at student work writing political cartoons and editorials expressing different perspectives on these topics. Ayres’ session is drawn from his ninth grade class. He will be working with different pages of text from Macbeth, pointing out passages and inviting exploration and discussion.
THURSDAY, JUNE 4 | 12:00 p.m. EDT
The 1619 Project and CA
Join faculty member Stephanie Manzella P ’14 ’17 ’18 to discuss the New York Times initiative, The 1619 Project, observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of U.S. slavery. In light of the national protests in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd, as well as the impact of the pandemic, a discussion of The 1619 Project is relevant now more than ever.
THURSDAY, JUNE 4 | 7:30 p.m. EDT
Alumnae/i Association Assembly
The Concord Academy Alumnae/i Association is delighted to host the 2020 Alumnae/i Association Assembly! An evolution of the Annual Meeting, the Assembly is a chance to bring alumnae/i across all class years together to hear updates from school leadership and members of the Alumnae/i Association Steering Committee, and take part in the ongoing community-wide conversation about CA’s future.
School leaders will discuss how CA has continued to live its mission during this unprecedented time. The circumstances brought on by COVID-19 have created opportunities for new approaches to teaching and learning. The pandemic has also challenged us to grapple with issues of equity — a core value for our school. Because we are CA, we are not shying away from the forces that are testing us — and because we are CA, we are committed to using this experience to make us better and stronger. We are eager to have you on this journey with us.
FRIDAY, JUNE 5 | 12:00 p.m. EDT
