Concordia is a truly exceptional school. 4 of my 5 children have graduated from CA and all have gone on to graduate college. Not one had to take a remedial class in college (as 30% of public high school graduates do) and 2 of the 4 received full ride scholarships for college. CA educates from a christian worldview with an emphasis on honoring God through excellence. It is a small personal school that may not be able to accommodate the whim of every parent, but they bend over backwards to meet the needs of the student. It's a wonderful school and on of the best kept secrets in the North Metro.
My son went 9th - 12th grade and I wish he would have gone anywhere else! Do not send your child to Concordia Academy. There are two teachers I do not think they are qualified yet they let others go. You do not have a choice of which teachers are to instruct your child's education. I inquired this freshman year and it started an uproar. No missions tips or strong community support for one another within their organization or within the students. Injuries are not reported to parents. The senior year book spelled his name wrong and did not include his baby picture they confirmed receiving. He left jr. high on the B honor roll and graduated an average. I expect a private school to maintain it and be recognized. He has yet to be accepted to a university. Not a good college prep school!
This school offers such a great environment! The teachers and staff honestly care about the academic, emotional and spiritual well-being of students. I loved it at Concordia Academy. Although there are limited electives, excellent college prep courses.
This school truly cares about each and every student; from the star football player to the shy kid. You can take everything from AP and college courses (PSEO and within the school) to the basics. It truly is a community where your child can grow to be the best they can be. They can also grow spiritually if they are receptive, but it is not necessary to get a great education. You can't find a better school community. My children love it there.
As a former 4.0 student who attended this high school for all four years, I would hesitantly recommend this school. It is a very religious school, and if you are not comfortable expressing your faith, then this school, with twice-weekly mandatory chapels, might not be for you. However, I will say that the school did push academics and encouraged the State's PSEO program, which I took part of. I did find that the school was very clique-y, and some of the students could be very judgemental if you were uncomfortable with your faith. Even though the teachers were very nice, they seemed to be out of touch with what was really happening in the school.
