Hotchkiss Summer Portals developed the The Concord Review History Camp to align with The Concord Review’s mission. This intensive workshop in history, research, and writing offers students an advisory structure in which to work on historical research papers on topics of their own choosing. Students arrive at the program with a research topic in hand that they then develop over the course of two weeks, with the end goal of writing a first draft of a historical research paper on their topic.
The Concord Review is a journal that showcases the academic excellence and writing ability of high school students who are studying history. It is meant to inspire others to achieve the next level of performance. The Concord Review was founded in 1987 to recognize and to publish exemplary history essays by high school students in the English-speaking world. With the Fall Issue (#134), 1,460 research papers have been published from authors in 46 states and 45 other countries. The Concord Review remains the only quarterly journal in the world to publish the academic history papers of secondary students.
