Individuals who value all life and work for the good of all things. We want students to care and take responsibility for the world and its resources, and seek to understand and accept differing worldviews and attitudes.
Our Approach to Academics
At Concordia, we believe that learning which is mastered and maintained is the outcome of effective teaching.
We understand that effective teaching is characterized by designing meaningful learning experiences that build on prior knowledge and actively guide the acquisition of complex skills to gradually increase student self-regulation and autonomy.
Teaching adopts a wide array of methodologies including technological innovations, differentiated approaches and personalized feedback to enable learning for all.
A Focus on Learning
Learning is at the center of everything we do. We aim to equip students with the processes of learning across the curriculum, so they are capable of meeting many different types challenges.
Knowledge is not only acquired in the classroom. We provide countless opportunities for our students to continue learning, expanding their skills, and growing their interests and passions through well-developed Fine Arts, Athletics, and Co-curricular programs.
We believe that effective teaching fosters learning that lasts.
We want our students to become:
People who work together to solve problems. Who are flexible and honest in their work and understand the importance of integrity and shared responsibility.
Individuals who know themselves and their own beliefs, demonstrating their values through their actions. We want students to serve others and be virtuous and respect all people, even if they express different beliefs or opinions.
Students who are capable of expressing themselves through written and spoken languages, and be discerning readers and active listeners. We teach our students to be well-versed in technology but not dependent on it, and we want them to use it responsibly.
The type of learners who ask questions and actively seek answers to those questions. Learners who observe, reflect and wonder, and who are not afraid to take risks, experiment and create as they learn.
