On the afternoon of October 25th, Mr.John McGarry, the admissions officer of Concord Academy visited our school and gave a lecture to G6-G8 students.
During the lecture, Mr.John McGarry spoke about the learning status of American boarding high school students, campus life, and cultural differences between China and the United States for students in grades 6 to 8.
During the Q & A session, students raised questions about the curriculum, community activities and accommodation at Concord Academy. The students benefited from such an open and rich exchange environment.
Then Mr.John McGarry went to the classroom and introduced CA’s admissions requirements and the characteristics of students to the eighth graders. Students also asked interesting questions, which impressed the admissions officer.
Concord Academy is a prestigious private high school in Massachusetts, offering classes from grades 9 to 12.
Founded in 1922, Concord Academy ranks 15th in the US boarding school (judged by students’ SAT and SSAT scores).
