History

Concordia Christian Academy has a rich history of serving families in the South Puget Sound area.

1899

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.

1939

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.

1948

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.

2002

In 2002, our partner school, Mount Rainier Lutheran High, opened its doors, thereby completing the K through 12th-grade educational experience on separate campuses.

2017

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.

Together we are known as
Concordia Christian Academy.
