EduCativ Posted June 24, 2021 Share Posted June 24, 2021 Concordia attracts those families seeking rigorous academics, a whole child philosophy, and a welcoming environment for themselves and their children. Our comprehensive American curriculum, from Preschool 3 to Grade 12, produces students with their unique balance of Global Citizen, Servant Leader, Spirited Athlete, Confident Artist, and Passionate Scholar. We invite you to stop by for a visit and discover for yourself the amazing community that makes up Concordia International School Shanghai. Concordia is a community. Through a culture of involvement and interaction with students and faculty, our families connect. The unique partnership that results ensures the best outcome for our students. Our diverse community, grounded in Christian values, creates the ideal foundation for the entire family’s success. Amazing educators and big ideas feed Concordia’s ethos of raising the bar in education, co-curricular activities, and community. With a focus on excellence in academics and authentic learning, we use curriculum incubators to develop educational experiences to respond to student interests. Our diverse intersection of passion, excellence, and strong community elevates the outcomes of all we do. At Concordia, rigorous American curriculum intersects with inspired fine arts, a culture of making and authentic learning, purpose-built facilities, and meaningful service-learning programs in a comprehensive way that challenges our students to reach their goals. Whether at Concordia for one year or through to graduation, our students find what they need to pursue life success. Concordia finds its roots in the 175-year-old educational traditions of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS). While our families and students come from diverse backgrounds and cultures, our shared values bring us together and create an environment of character building, respectful cross-cultural collaboration, and academic excellence. Our students discover their unique balance of Global Citizen, Servant Leader, Spirited Athlete, Confident Artist, and Passionate Scholar. We believe that one can possess a blend of any of these so our students thrive in a community where their interests and passions are nurtured holistically–intellectually, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. Concordia students take away the amazing experience of having tried their hand at many things, having gained confidence in the ability to adapt and learn new skills, and having mastered a few of their favorites. At each stage of the journey, students are encouraged to approach their exploration and learning with passionate excellence. Our athletic program ensures that our high school student-athletes learn life lessons in character, teamwork, and resiliency. Their coaches are not just coaching them for a season, they are coaches for life. With 14 sports offered over three seasons, athletes can excel in their sport(s) and try their hand at others. Varsity athletes at Concordia experience unique opportunities as they compete against students from other international schools in Shanghai and around the world. Seven diverse and competitive sports programs are available to middle school students interested in athletics. In grades 7 and 8, select teams are available in some sports while in grades 5 and 6, the focus is on learning to play and understanding sportsmanship. Students can also participate in middle school Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs), through which students learn fair play and develop interpersonal skills that are integral to life success, both on and off the court. For those elementary students who love being active, Concordia teachers supplement physical education and play with engaging and educational Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) that focus on getting physical such as Fit Club, Tennis, and Kung Fu. Concordia also works with outside vendors to provide alternative sports options for a fee such as Kung Fu or Tennis. There are also sports opportunities offered by external organizations that use our campus facilities. Concordia’s philosophy of balance permeates every part of our students’ lives and evolves as a student progresses through the grades. We offer programs that are focused and refined, encouraging our students towards passionate excellence, polishing their natural gifts, and achieving their goals.
