Cannon School's 50th Anniversary

Cannon School has reached a magnificent milestone—our 50th anniversary as a school.

Throughout 2019-2020, we will celebrate Cannon’s 50th anniversary with special events on campus and in our surrounding communities. Mark your calendars now, and plan to join in our yearlong celebration!

Share a Special Memory

Reaching 50 years is really about you—our students, parents, alumni, teachers, coaches, families, and friends who have boldly learned, laughed, and looked forward together.

Do you have a special Cannon School or Cabarrus Academy memory to share? Or do you want to tell us how Cannon has shaped who you are today?

Looking Back

Cannon School, established in 1969 as Cabarrus Academy and renamed in 1998, originally occupied the historic Concord residence of textile entrepreneur J.W. Cannon. In the nearly-five decades since, Cannon School has transformed itself from a small school in downtown Concord to one of the Charlotte region's top independent college-preparatory schools.
