What is it?

We want to showcase our high school by inviting prospective 9-12th graders on campus for a half day where they will eat lunch, attend chapel, hear from alumni and engage in several activities led by faculty and students.

What’s in it for me?

We are excited to show off our high school, and who better than you, our students, to do this? If you invite a friend to Concordia Day and they attend the event, you'll be able to choose a gift card. In addition, you'll be entered to win a larger prize!

We need YOU!

What are you waiting for? Let’s get the word out! Postcards are available to help you spread the news about Concordia Day; they also have information regarding registration. Pick them up in the office or see Mrs. Larsen.

He has experience working with a wide variety of learners and would love to assist our current students.
