‘Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.’

This quote from the Nobel Prize winner W.B. Yeats provides a succinct overview of what we aim to achieve at Concordia College; to light a fire of curiosity that inspires engagement and a desire for personal growth within each of our students.

The vision of Concordia College is contained in three words: Engage, Achieve, Serve. As you explore our website, we hope that you gain an insight into how these three objectives are realised through our school programs.

As well as our commitment to academic engagement and achievement, we offer a wide range of opportunities that encourage students to discover and develop their talents and interests within a safe and supportive environment.

Christian faith and spirituality underpins the practices of Concordia College. In this context service to others is an important aspect of school life. In fulfilling our mission we provide opportunities for students 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 outstanding academic outcomes. Our hope is for all Concordia graduates to leave with a quiet but confident sense of who they are, equipped to achieve and serve throughout their lives.

We welcome you to Concordia College and invite you to visit our campuses on one of our Principal’s Tours to experience it for yourself.
