The mission of Concordia Charter School is to provide families a choice for a high quality education for their child(ren) in a safe, caring and harmonious environment.
Concordia Charter School, Inc., founded in 2004, was established as a K-8 public charter school to provide parents in disadvantaged communities with the choice of a high quality education for their children in a small, safe and nurturing environment.
The school operates on the campus of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in the CANDO neighborhood of northwest Mesa, Arizona. The school uses the highly acclaimed Core Knowledge curriculum to provide a high expectations, high performance academic environment for its students. 98% of the school's students qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch, a nationally recognized poverty indicator. The school has a minority rate in excess of 95% with over 44% of the children classified as English Language Learners (ELL).
While every effort is made to create an effective and efficient classroom learning experience for the children during the school day, children who live in economically challenged environments require more time to catch up culturally and academically with children who do not face the same challenges. This is why having a well-developed extra-curricular activities program that includes tutoring, academic clubs, organized recreational activities, field trips, etc., is so important to this population of students.
