Concordia welcomes students and families from all faith backgrounds. Because our community heritage is rooted in the 170-year-old educational traditions of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, we believe every child is a gift from God and are committed in Christian stewardship to educate each holistically in a nurturing environment.
Our teachers care as much about your child’s well-being as they do about their academic standings. Teachers partner with students and parents in a learning community that facilitates holistic education with high expectations. The result is a challenging yet supportive environment where all can thrive.
A wide variety of activities are available after school—including sports, the fine arts and games. These are available to our students from Grade 1 through High School. The choices change seasonally. School fees cover activities unless otherwise stated. Transportation is provided following most co-curricular activities for students who have purchased school bus transportation. There are additional sport and community organizations that offer paid lessons/activities for students beginning in preschool that are hosted on campus.
Concordia is committed to creating a foundation for the entire family’s success and fostering a strong partnership between school and home. Our Parent Support Organization (PSO) offers many ways to strengthen that partnership. The PSO hosts monthly on-campus parent meetings, and parents are invited to become involved in a variety of classroom and school activities. Regular PSO and parent-driven activities include book fairs, classroom parties, teacher appreciation events, the Phoenix Shop “spirit store,” and fundraising.
Email is the primary means through which the school communicates with its parent body. Students in Grade 5 to Grade 12 also have individual Aspen accounts, an on-line resource to keep parents informed of their children’s classroom activities as well as their children’s academic performance. Weekly communication is provided on a school level newsletter through "The Focus".
