Concordia College is a co-educational International Baccalaureate World School located in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs, offering a comprehensive education from Early Learning Centre to Year 12.
Our Vision Statement is: Inspiring and equipping hearts, hands and minds for a world of possibilities.
As well as our commitment to academic engagement and achievement, we offer a wide range of enrichment opportunities that encourage students to discover and develop their talents and interests within a safe and supportive environment.
Service to others is a core component of the Christian faith that underpins the ethos and practices of Concordia College. In fulfilling our mission, we provide opportunities for students at all year levels to learn and grow through service and to reflect on their own spiritual development.
We have high expectations and aspirations for our students, who consistently achieve some outstanding academic outcomes. Most students go on to a quality tertiary education in universities throughout Australia and, in some cases, overseas. Our aspiration is for all Concordia graduates to leave with a quiet but confident sense of who they are, inspired and equipped to achieve and serve throughout their lives.
The Middle Years Programme at Concordia College, encompassing Years 7 to 10, has a strong focus on student inquiry and developing a love of lifelong learning. Students take a range of subjects to provide breadth of knowledge in preparation for further studies. Interdisciplinary units are explored at each year level, and the Personal Project is completed in Year 10 to showcase the culmination of students’ studies and exploration of the six Global Contexts. There is an emphasis on study beyond the classroom, with various excursions and camps undertaken. All students are given an opportunity to experience learning in a different environment by participating in a range of activities to serve and help others within the local community. The Middle Years Programme gives students an opportunity to build on the Learner Profile and develop the attributes to enable them to participate in the world around them.
