Health & Safety

The health and safety of our students is an important and intentional consideration at Concordia. Therefore, we are proactive in maintaining an environment that allows all those who enter our campus to feel welcome, safe and secure. We consider all of our preparedness measures and safety procedures holistically to ensure the physical safety and emotional well-being of our school community.

Accessing Campus

To maintain a safe and welcoming environment, security on the Concordia campus encompasses a combination of automated turnstiles that require a valid school ID for entry and exit, closed circuit security cameras and 24/7 security personnel. Visitors without a valid Concordia ID card are required to submit a government issued ID before entering school grounds.

Onsite Health Professionals

Concordia has two health offices onsite with full-time, registered nurses to tend to the everyday health needs of our students and who are qualified to handle emergency care.

A certified athletic trainer serves students and faculty from a purpose-built sports medicine office equipped with the physical therapy tools needed to handle any sports-related injuries that may occur.

In addition to our onsite medical staff, all faculty and staff who work directly with students undergo comprehensive first-aid and emergency preparedness training.

Emotional Health and Safety

All children face certain complex emotions during their school years—it’s part of growing up. In addition to their physical safety, we take into account the emotional well-being of our students. Our counseling and guidance staff provide support for students dealing with mental, emotional and stress-related difficulties.

Clearing the air

Concordia continues to invest in the safety and health of our school environment. This includes sustainable solutions to ensure clean, safe air in our campus buildings. Built-in systems across campus ensure that the air quality in all classrooms and common areas remains well below U.S. EPA standards in regard to 2.5 particulate and other pollutants even when the external air quality is poor.

External air quality levels are checked throughout the day and reported via color-coded signs at the entrances to each division using the same monitoring equipment as the U.S. Consulate.

COVID-19 Protection

The Concordia Shanghai Operations Team and Health Department have been hard at work since news of the COVID-19 virus first broke in January 2020. Immediately upon hearing of this disease, our dedicated staff began preparing our campus, our procedures, and our supplies to protect the Concordia community and comply with all Chinese government regulations and requirements. 

The health and safety of our students, parents, and employees are of the utmost importance to us. We strive to always provide a healthy environment for the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of our community. This is crucially important during pandemics, such as COVID-19, and Concordia Shanghai has taken the virus, and our response, with the seriousness that our community deserves. If you have any questions or concerns about our campus preparedness, please email
