365体育网址大全For almost a century, Concord Academy alumnae/i have been bound together by a love of learning, service to others, and a proud legacy of advocacy. With more than 5,800 CA graduates living around the globe, we are a small but powerful community and our connections to CA and each other span both distance and time.
As someone who attended CA, you are automatically a member of the Concord Academy Alumnae/i Association, a group that serves as a primary link to fellow alumnae/i as well as current students and school developments. We strive to ensure CA remains present and relevant in all stages of your life.
Recently, we refreshed the CA Alumnae/i Association mission statement to better reflect our goals and purpose.
The Alumnae/i Association fosters lifelong connections between Concord Academy and its alumnae/i community. The Association facilitates meaningful opportunities to preserve and promote a love of learning, service to others, and a commitment to diverse perspective and backgrounds. Through involvement in the life of the school, within the community, and through service to the greater world, the Association strives to renew and affirm the core values instilled while at CA.
365体育网址大全Our days in Concord were unique, and we invite you to remain involved or re-engage in the life of the school— sharing your professional experiences with CA students, attending regional alumnae/i events, serving on your reunion committee, and supporting the school’s Annual Fund are just a few of the many opportunities open to you.
365体育网址大全Please also be sure to read our monthly alumnae/i newsletter, send in class notes for the magazine, update your contact information, and stay up to date on all things CA via Facebook, Instagram and CA@100. The voices of alumnae/i are of critical importance as we approach CA’s centennial in 2022, and we look forward to collaborating with you to bring the Alumnae/i Association mission alive in innovative, creative and exciting ways.
