Elementary School

Co-curricular activities and clubs run parallel to the curriculum and provide additional exposure to experiential learning within a safe and nurturing environment.

The elementary school provides additional classroom support to students and teachers in the areas of STEM, literacy, and ELL.

Welcome to Elementary School

Concordia’s Elementary School works in partnership with students and parents to cultivate life-long learning skills. From their first attempts at sounding out words to completing their first chapter book and beyond, students learn by exploration. Along the way, they have ample opportunities to connect to the world around them, develop awareness of self and others and practice leadership skills.

Students work collaboratively on a wide variety of projects, surrounded by role models exemplifying Christian values and character. They are encouraged to be actively involved in the learning process; by asking questions, finding information through developmentally appropriate research activities, reflecting on the work of others and developing sound foundational work habits, they learn skills that they can continue to use throughout their lives.

Concordia’s commitment to holistic education means children also explore how to be friends by practicing strategies for dealing with social and emotional needs, respect and care for their bodies and the world around them and compassion for the needs of others through service-learning opportunities that make a real difference in the lives of others.

Early Childhood Education

Our Early Childhood Program purposely uses play to foster our youngest learners' self-confidence and to encourage exploration of the world around them. In our full-day programs, academics, motor skills and social/emotional skills all play equally important roles in the holistic development of each student.


The Elementary School Handbook for students and parents provides a comprehensive look at the elementary school program, from daily schedules and homework to communication methods and child protection policies.

Counseling Support

Our elementary school counseling program provides education, prevention and intervention services, which are integrated into all aspects of a student’s life.

Health & Safety

The safety of our students is of utmost importance; therefore, we take very seriously the security of each individual's physical and emotional health.

Bridges in Mathematics

Helping students build a solid understanding of mathematical concepts is made more successful when approaching math learning in a practical, real-world context.

Service & Service Learning

We promote service in various ways across the school community. Older elementary school students read to younger ones in a “book buddy” system, and children as early as grade 2 participate in YEP Club. Service learning is even integrated in into social studies units in Grades 3 and 4.

Elementary School Library

With the aim of cultivating literacy among our young students, we have made our library facilities wholesome and inviting environments that promote a love for books and reading.

Technology is used extensively to enhance student learning. It's apparent in all areas of the curriculum and activities.
