General School Mission

Teach the child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will never part from it. Proverbs 22:6

Concordia Lutheran School (CLS) provides a Christian based preschool, primary, and middle school education. Our faculty and staff view the learner as a “whole child,” striving to meet each child’s developmental needs in terms of spiritual, mental, physical and social education. Our teachers are committed to educational goals of excellence. Education is provided in a safe, loving and God-pleasing setting that adheres to the Holy Scriptures, and upholds the principles of the Lutheran Confessions. We teach from a carefully chosen curriculum, enhanced with creative teaching techniques, varied learning opportunities and use of technology. Concordia’s parents and teachers work hand in hand to prepare our students to be life-long Christians and learners, and to apply their knowledge and skills in meeting life’s challenges.


Concordia Lutheran School seeks to carry out the command of our Lord Jesus Christ to “feed my lambs” by providing quality childcare in a Christian setting by using loving, creative, and purposeful means to train and nurture each child in our care. Our concern is for the total personality of the child—physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director


Concordia Parent Teach League (PTL) meets regularly during the school year and hosts a wide range of activities. The PTL has been responsible for many fine additions to the school and its programs. All Concordia parents are encouraged to participate in the PTL and to support its activities and projects.


There are several ways you can help us maintain the best possible teaching atmosphere for your child:

Communicate to us your concerns regarding our program or your child.
Pick up and read the notices and information left for you at the sign-in desk.
Pick up your child’s papers/projects daily. Their work is very important to them and provides another means of communication between parent and child and helps the parent share in the child’s day.
Periodically check on your child’s supply of extra clothing. Please take home soiled clothing promptly.
Because children quickly learn to model behavior, we ask that you govern your speech and conduct with Christian values.


When you enroll your child at CLS, we assume the responsibility of giving you assistance with your child’s special needs. We will become the “parent for the day” in your absence. We will love and respect your child and help him/her grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, and mentally. Your child will be given our maximum consideration as an individual. We will look after the health of your child while at CLS and present a planned program to provide a beneficial and educational experience. Our goal is to provide high quality care in an atmosphere of love and respect that fosters growth in moral and spiritual values.
