Wedgwood Preschool

“Concordia and the Giraffe class (5’s program) for pre kindergarten has been excellent. With a late summer birthday we found that our kiddo needed just one more year before starting kindergarten and the 5’s class was perfect. Great mix of boys and girls, a sweet loving class and the teachers are amazing.”  Kathleen, 2018

Lake City Preschool

“What a great first introduction to school for our 2 year old!  The teachers are head over heels passionate about each child and treated our daughter as if she was the most important person in the room while still teaching and caring for all the other students. I was impressed with all they did in a day from play to working on fine and large motor skills.” Christine, 2018

Elementary School

“We were looking for another school for our child and we were impressed with the curriculum, multiage model, and aftercare. My child attended for school day to see if he would like it. Before I could ask, he said, “mom I want to go here” and he started mid-year. Coming to Concordia has been the best decision for our child and family. We came for the academic environment – but we have been so amazed by its peaceful and purposeful community. Concordia has a long history in this neighborhood and is part of a rich tradition in schooling and higher education. It is truly is a special place.”  Jennifer, 2018
