2020-21 Important Contact Information

Welcome to Concord Academy.

This “Help Line” is provided to help steer you in the right direction for questions that may come up along the way as you and your child become familiar with CA.

Advisor: Your child’s advisor is the primary liaison between your family and the school. The advisor is the first person to whom faculty members turn when a student is in difficulty; likewise, you should communicate with the advisor when you have a question about your child’s life at school, or information that may help guide it. Students meet on a regular basis with their advisor who is a resource for questions, support, problems, and/or a friendly chat. Ask your child’s advisor how they prefer to be contacted—phone, e­mail, at home, at work, etc.

After-Hours Emergencies: The administrator on duty can be reached directly at 978-402-2388.

Attendance: Contact Jackie Decareau at 978-402-2202 no later than 8:40 a.m. if your day student will be late or absent.

CA Handbook: The CA Handbook, which is available online, is an excellent resource to consult for information about CA and should answer many questions. If you have any questions, please contact Renee Coburn at 978-402-2273 in the Student Life Office.

CA Website: General information about Concord Academy can be found at Please refer to the Parent Section for weekly news updates and calendars. The Athletic Calendar is updated frequently, providing an excellent resource for changes in game schedules and venues.
