Welcome To The Centipede

The Concord Academy Student-Run Journalism Publication



Who Are We?

The Centipede is a student-run journalism publication that distinctly reflects the CA student body. We are comprised of several student writers, editors, and layout staff.

What do we do?

Our 2019-20 Editorial Board is made up of about 20 students who work as editors and staff writers. Each member contributes ideas, writing, and edits to every issue. Those on staff also attend weekly meetings, where we work to plan upcoming issues, sharpen our journalistic skills, and train new writers.


What do we write about?

Within each publication, you’ll likely encounter articles on school events, local art exhibits, winning sports teams, and interviews with faculty, staff, and alumnae/i. We also publish commentary written by CA students about personal experiences, politics, and more.

How do we create our publications?

Members of the staff are involved in every stage of the paper’s production, pitching article ideas, interviewing sources, photographing events, and perfecting the layout.

Though we recently launched this website where you can stay up-to-date with The Centipede online, our print edition remains the newspaper’s flagship. Free copies of each issue are distributed to students and faculty, but you can sign up to receive our monthly paper in the mail by emailing Renee Coburn (Renee_Coburn@concordacademy.org) in the Student Life Office. We hope that these editions keep you informed about not only what is occurring on campus, but also about what CA students are discussing with friends in the dining hall and debating in classrooms.
