Education is not what it used to be. Concord Academy embraces new techniques, research-based methods, integration of subject matter, and differentiation to meet each students' needs. Since our very first year, our fine arts program has been the life of our instructional plan, with traditional academics as its backbone. With changing state and federal requirements Concord has searched for opportunities to improve our program while maintaining our original goals.

A typical elementary day includes instruction in core academics, art, and music. In the secondary grades, students maintain instruction in the core academic courses as well as Art, Band, Choir, and Theater.

Concord Academy-Petoskey earned the School of Excellence distinction in 2011. Concord is the ninth Public School of Excellence in the state of Michigan.
