Despite inevitable bumps in the road, my experience at Concord was everything I could have wanted from a private high school. I definitely had frustrations with the administration, but I think that the community support, the dedication of the teachers and the community's overall creativity make this an incredible place. I was pushed academically, artistically and emotionally. My teachers invested themselves completely in my learning and took the time to know me as both a student and person.

I loved the opportunity to design an independent study senior year. One day, while we were discussing some of my poems, my teacher looked me straight in the eye and said: "I'm editing these as a colleague, not as a teacher." That, for me, was a quintessential CA moment and it's how I'll always remember the school.
Review Concord Academy
The academics at CA are in theory, remarkable, however, it's the execution of the curiculum that makes the whole thing ineffective. This is a school for textbook learners, because that's really what the CA learning environment boils down to. It's reading a textbook for homework, taking notes, and then having a lecture about it in class the next day. It seems more productive than it is, because with this method, tons of students who either simply don't learn this way, or have learning disabilities fall through the cracks. The teachers really do care about what they're doing, so that makes the old-school method with which they present material even more frustrating.

Furthermore, this school is remarkably white, straight, and wealthy. It is a breeding ground for mental illness and self hatred and yet is ill equiped to handle those issues when they arise.
My son has been attending the past few years and has had an incredibly eye opening education. CA is a serious academic school while also maintaining a healthy respect and regard for all the arts. Students come in as freshmen and are able to discover who they are with the support and encouragement of a dedicated faculty. Progressive education, common trust, social justice, excellent relations between boarders and day students, gorgeous location, arts infused curriculum and outstanding leadership are only some of the things I can say about CA.
