Concordia Lutheran School was founded in 1899 as part of Concordia Lutheran Church on South Anthony in Fort Wayne. The school has operated continuously since then. In 1949 Concordia was the first Lutheran school in the area to racially integrate as it served the families of the east side.
Concordia Lutheran School moved to its large Lake Avenue campus in 1960 and the congregation followed in 1973. The school’s 100th anniversary was celebrated in 1999.
Concordia serves students in three age groups. Our preschool program serves children from age three through pre- kindergarten, providing quality and developmentally appropriate education with Jesus at the center. The elementary school serves children in grades Kindergarten through fourth grade with two classrooms at each grade level. The middle school program involves fifth grade through eighth grade and provides an age appropriate program that balances the best of a large and small middle school program.
Since then Concordia has renewed that accreditation through a process of continual improvement, completing this process most recently In 2015.
Concordia Lutheran School attempts to coordinate its school year with those of the other Lutheran schools in Fort Wayne and with Concordia Lutheran High School.
The twenty-eight professional teachers at Concordia Lutheran School average over fifteen years of classroom experience. All teachers have at least a bachelor’s degree and all elementary and middle school teachers are state licensed. Over 80% of our teaching staff have received training specifically preparing them for teaching in Lutheran schools.
In addition to skills in content areas and classroom management, a primary factor in selecting teachers is having a living relationship with Jesus Christ that is clearly evidenced. Having a deep and abiding concern for students and their academic, emotional and spiritual welfare is a hallmark of Concordia teachers.
Preschool 50 students in three classes Elementary School 243 students
The comprehensive standards-based National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) was earned by Concordia in 1993.
Concordia Lutheran School Profile (continued)
Concordia Lutheran School has a specific standardized dress code for grades K-8. While not a school uniform, the standardized dress code is designed to help students see school as a special place where they work at learning and therefore, like their parents, have clothing that is appropriate for that work.
In its most basic form, the dress code has students wearing chino-style pants or shorts (girls may wear skirts) in a narrow range of solid colors. Appropriate student tops would include (in any solid color) polo shirts, sweatshirts or sweaters.
A School Handbook is published each year which outlines policies and procedures designed to enhance the school experience for everyone and make Concordia a safe and nurturing place.
Concordia graduates attend Concordia Lutheran High School and other area high schools. Feedback from high school administrators, parents and students indicates our graduates have been very
Concordia students compare favorably with other students on state and national testing and the gap appears to widen the longer students attend Concordia.
Concordia helps families with their busy schedules by offering extended care before and after school.
