Thank you for your interest in Concordia Preparatory School.  We look forward to working with your family. 

Admissions Steps

Join MyConcordia today…

And we are here to support you through the process every step of the way.

How? We use an online portal, called MyConcordia. Once you establish your personal MyConcordia account, you can manage your child’s application and schedule visits at your leisure – 7 days a week 24 hours a day.

Getting started is easy!

  1. Log in to My Concordia (see above).
  2. If you need to create an account, note the highlighted section.
  3. If you forget your login information, you can request a reminder shown on the bottom right of the login screen. 
  4. Once logged in, select your student’s name to open the checklist in the far left corner.
  5. Navigate to the application checklist and follow the button prompts.  (Checklist screen shown right).
  6. Notice the online Schedule feature that displays the available appointments on a calendar. Choose a time that works for you.

Your account will also display updates to your application checklist status with updates, such as transcripts and recommendations, that generally appear within 24 hours. 

Once your student is enrolled, this same portal manages academic progress and is a family resource where homework assignments and grades are posted. Parents and students appreciate having one location to manage all their school information.

Tip: As with most accounts, it’s good practice to keep track of your login and password information. If you forget, you can request a reminder shown on the bottom right of the login screen.

ADMISSIONS STEP BY STEP BREAKDOWN

Step 1: APPLY in MyConcordia  – Deadline: Friday, December 17, 2021

2022-2023 Application: The 2022-2023 application will be available on October 1, 2021.

To begin the formal admissions process, create an online account and submit the online application. From there, you will have access to our Admissions Checklist. Remember to save your login details so you may return to the portal and track which components have been received, as well as check your progress. 

Step 2: Schedule a Visit

We encourage all families to visit the school (shadow visit, personal tour, open house, family forum) prior to applying. We have planned a variety of options, both online and in-person, to facilitate your learning and application to Concordia Prep School fall 2022. Please visit our Admissions Events page for registration details.

Step 3: Submit Records Request for Transcript – Due January 15, 2022

The Release of Records Form can be found on our website or in the Admissions Checklist in My Concordia. A parent will need to download, print, sign, and submit the form to your child’s school counselor or principal at their current school. Your child’s school should return the form, official transcripts/school records, conduct record, and attendance record to our Admissions Office. We need to receive grades reflecting the students’ current performance and the previous two years. For example, for any student applying for the 9th grade, we need to receive the student’s final 6th and 7th-grade report card and the most up to date 8th-grade report card. 

We recommend documents are emailed. Records are due to Concordia Prep School by Friday, January 15, 2022.

Step 4: Common Referral Forms – Due January 15, 2022

These forms can be found here and on the Admissions Checklist in MyConcordia. Records are due to Concordia Prep School by Saturday, January 15, 2022.

Concordia Prep requires two (2) common referral forms from the student’s current school academic teachers. We ask that one (1) form be from the student’s English teacher and one (1) from the student’s Math or Science teacher. More than two (2) referral forms are welcome to be submitted. Please do not complete this form before November 15 and return to the SCHOOL to which candidate is applying by January 15.

 (See AIMS Confidentiality Statement).

Step 5: Admissions Interview

An important and necessary component in the admissions process is the opportunity for the prospective student to meet with members of our Admissions Team. Once your family has completed the application and submitted records and common referrals, our Admissions Team will set up your admissions interview. Interviews will begin in November, 2021.  

Step 6: Apply for Tuition Assistance or Scholarships (Optional)

Concordia Prep strives to provide financial assistance to qualifying families. In order to be eligible for financial aid consideration, please complete the Facts Grant and Aid Assessment (FACTS) online. Concordia Prep School offers Merit and Co-Curricular Scholarships. Visit our Financial Aid page to learn more.

*Admission Testing: We do not require, yet strongly recommend, completion of the ISEE test for Middle School students (grades 6-8) for admission to the school. Students applying for High School (grades 9 and 10) may take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE), or the HSPT.
