Concord Boyne Core Values
Mission & Values
Mission: Concord Academy Boyne inspires, prepares, and empowers students in Academics and the Arts.
Our Vision: Concord Academy Boyne cultivates a supportive learning environment based upon our creed that prepares students for a life of impact.
Dedication to Fine Arts
We are committed to the fine arts as a necessary part of a child’s education because the arts provide students with:
- an outlet for creativity and passion
- self-esteem and confidence
- the opportunity to find their voice
- leadership skills
- public speaking and communication skills
Every student at CAB gets an opportunity to experience this!
We aren’t just preparing students for college, or a career, we’re preparing them for life! Small class sizes allow students greater opportunities for leadership, ownership, and for connecting with their community through service learning and volunteering.
In addition to regular experiences, students also have an opportunity to continue their leadership path through participation in:
- Student Council
- National Junior Honor Society
- National Honor Society
Concord Academy Boyne rests in beautiful Boyne Falls, MI and is centrally located to the Boyne, Gaylord and the Petoskey School systems.

What is Concord Academy Boyne?
Why Concord Academy Boyne?
We have a relentless ambition for the fine arts. It is important our students express individual talents in each individual way.
We provide our students a one-on-one atmosphere. We feel this allows students to not only get the attention they may need…
Dedication to our community…
Construction began on Dietz Road in the summer of 1995. The original construction consisted of nine regular classrooms, three larger fine arts rooms, and a few small rooms used for offices. This 13,000 sq. ft. building housed a K-8 school in our first year.
In the summer of 1998, construction began on a 15,000 sq. ft. addition that consisted of seven regular classrooms, a double room to be used as a library space, and two additional sets of bathrooms. This addition was built after we decided to add a high school to our existing system.
We agreed to allocate this larger area for the Elementary wing, while we made renovations to the original wing in order to better serve the addition of high school program. Our transition was a gradual one, adding one grade per year, with our first graduating class being the class of 2000. Four rooms were converted into two large science classrooms, one for the Middle School and one for the High School.
While we are committed to our original vision and focus, we are currently looking for ways to increase seating capacity for school performances. Recently we have been examining the possibility of expanding our auditorium and/or constructing separate structures for the aforementioned purpose.
