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.
The Concord Review remains the only quarterly journal in the world to publish the academic work of secondary students.

Excerpt from May 2011 article on a Wharton / UPenn blog:
"That’s why Chetan Singhal, a senior at United World College of S.E. Asia in Singapore, was inspired to turn his interest in medieval history into a research paper on the trial of the Knights Templar. After literally stumbling across a volume of The Concord Review in his library a year ago, he became intrigued by the fact that such high-quality work was being done by other high school students. “It was then it struck me, that even I could produce a work like this, and that even if it doesn’t get published, it will definitely be worth the effort,” says the 17-year-old.
Singhal’s essay was published in the Review — an accomplishment that helped him gain acceptance at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass. where he will be going in the fall. Not everyone is as fortunate to make the same self-discovery as Singhal. According to Fitzhugh, reading nonfiction books and writing a research paper still remain foreign concepts to most high school students."
NB: The Concord Review is now published digitally, so the print issues available are back issues.
