Life After Concord
The paths our graduates take are as unique and individual as the students themselves. After leaving Concord, our graduates go on to universities, community colleges, technical schools, para-college programs, employment, and other placements.
Jake B., Class of 2019
Jake is in his second year of the TigerLIFE program at University of Memphis and is a talented drummer. He currently works at a manufacturer/distributor of home organization tools. He’s also a big Memphis Tiger fan and was manager for the Tiger football team in their 2019 season.
Josie K., Class of 2019
Josie works on her family’s farm and loves all the animals — and they love her back! As a senior at Concord, she interned at a veterinarian’s office and she also completed a job shadow with the Tennessee Equine Hospital. She is an accomplished barrel rider and competes regularly. She trained her own registered service dog, a beautiful German Shorthaired Pointer named Chance, who never leaves her side.
Vito M., Class of 2018
After graduating from Concord Academy, Vito attended Murray State University and University of Memphis, and is currently enrolled in the Automotive Service Technology program at Moore Tech. He loves drawing, photography, LEGOS, cartoons, and video production. He enjoyed being a student at Concord because there were no bullies and he made lots of friends with whom he still keeps in touch.
Sam S., Class of 2017
After Sam graduated from Concord Academy he completed the EDGE program at Union University in 2019, and has since accomplished some major goals toward becoming an independent adult. He is now employed at Ave Maria Home as an activities assistant, and was recognized as Employee of the Month there last year. He obtained his driver’s license and bought his own car. Sam is very active at his church where he is a member of the young adults ministry, the special needs ministry, and the golf cart ministry. Sam’s favorite thing is helping people and making a difference.
