Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!

Theme Verse for the 2017-2018 School Year

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.”  Romans 12:2a

Welcome! Summer is flying by and it is almost time to start a new year at Concordia Prep! We hope your summer has been a time of rest and rejuvenation, spent with family and friends.

We thank God for blessing us with an excellent school staff again this year, with a great blend of wisdom, experience, youth, and energy. The faculty has been preparing throughout the summer for the school year ahead. We have been busy updating curriculum and campus for the 2017-2018 year. We praise God for the blessings and opportunities He is giving our school through increased enrollment and additional teaching staff, and we especially thank Him for you. We believe that God has brought you to Concordia, and we cannot wait to see what He has in store for you!
