The school traces its roots to 1899 where it began as Zion Lutheran School in North Tacoma and was operated by that congregation for 40 years.
In 1939, the Concordia Lutheran School Association was formed by three churches, and Concordia Lutheran School began serving families in the Parkland area across from Pacific Lutheran University.
In 1948, Concordia moved to its current campus at East 56th and B Street on a 7.5 acre site which now consists of four separate buildings.
In 2002, our partner school, Mount Rainier Lutheran High, opened its doors, thereby completing the K through 12th-grade educational experience on separate campuses.
In 2017, Concordia and Mount Rainier rebranded and established a new, independent non-profit structure under the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and serves nearly 200 children on a combined K-12 campus.
