The Concord Review, Inc., was founded in March 1987
to recognize and to publish exemplary history essays by high school
students in the English-speaking world. With the Summer 2013 Issue (#97), 1,066 research papers (average 6,000 words, with endnotes
and bibliography) have been published from authors in forty-six
states and thirty-eight other countries. The Concord Review remains the only quarterly journal in the world to publish the academic
work of secondary students.
Many of our authors have sent reprints of their papers with their
college application materials, and they have gone on to Brown (25), Chicago (20), Columbia (21), Cornell (15), Dartmouth (20), Harvard (116),
Oxford (13), Pennsylvania (23), Princeton (60), Stanford (38), Yale
(97), and a number of other fine institutions, including Amherst,
Berkeley, Bryn Mawr, Caltech, Cambridge, Chicago, McGill, Middlebury, MIT, Reed, Smith, Trinity,
Tufts, Virginia, Wellesley, Wesleyan, and Williams.
We have sent such exemplary history essays to subscribers (students,
teachers and librarians) in forty-two states and thirty-eight other
countries (Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada,
Chile, China, Colombia, Cyprus, England, France, Greece, Holland, Indonesia,
Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, New Guinea,
New Zealand, Paraguay, Philippines, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Switzerland,
Turkey, Venezuela and Wales). Schools in Bangkok, California, Connecticut,
Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Singapore, Texas, Vermont and
Virginia have class sets of the Review, and teachers are using these
essays as examples of good historical writing. One girls' school in
Monterey, California has 70 subscriptions for their history students, Singapore American School now has 125 subscriptions, and Bangkok Patana School in Thailand has a class set for their students of history.
