Students grades 6-8 participate two days a week on a variety of challenge projects similar in style to Odyssey of the mind and science fair competitions. To quote student Jacob Moore, “we build it, it breaks, we build it again and improve it until we have the final product”. The Engineering projects vary throughout the year, with various challenge projects centered around aviation and aeronautics, robotics, bridge building, egg drop competition, rocketry and this fall building twin 18 foot trebuchet pumpkin catapults. Students learn to work with a variety of small hand tools and conduct advance research in optimum designs for their projects.
Concordia has an extensive school music program. All students receive education on the music theory from the core curriculum. An important activity of the school is the children's choirs, organized for the purpose of aiding and beautifying worship. Starting in 5th grade, students have the opportunity to participate in Band with various instruments. Grades 6-8 may also choose to take Concert Choir and/or Handbells.
Our Spanish program focuses on exploring the Hispanic culture and learning the Spanish language. The program is developed in 2 stages. K-4th grades, students build their vocabulary by developing their listening skills in the learning of the Spanish language through interactive games, songs and playful activities. These activities prepare them for grades 5th -8th, where they can put into practice all the vocabularies learned and start to create and understand the linguistic part of the Spanish language.
What Parents Are Saying
My Concordia Story
My daughter, Danielle, started Concordia in the third grade before the building was built that exists today. She had been in public school before, and the difference was overwhelming.
