The Concordia Advantage


As a leading international school in China, we expect much from our students and provide the instruction and holistic support they need to excel. Amazing results ensue. Concordia is Shanghai's American school where students find their unique balance through authentic experience within a vibrant community of quality faculty, engaged parents, and passionate students. That's the Concordia Advantage.




Concordia's state-of-the-art facilities provide the best opportunity for student-athletes to train and perform. Spaces are available for High School, Middle School and Elementary School students to use during and after school for training and play.

Academic and co-curricular programs offered at Concordia



At Concordia, we view every student as a gift from God, entrusted to us by parents, and are committed in Christian stewardship to educate students holistically in a nurturing environment that includes comprehensive and challenging opportunities in academics, creative arts, spirituality, athletics, co-curricular activities and service.

At Concordia, it’s not just about the grades. It’s about balance. 

When we say we educate the whole child we mean that we invest in and tend to every part of each student: spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually. 

Our parents are partners with us in this process, helping their student to find his or her own unique balance. With this partnership and shared values, every child wins.

“At Concordia, I am able to complete four year-round research projects, design a farm project in my Global Development class, visit Israel and the West Bank for my research project, take amazing applied classes such as Shanghai Studies and epidemiology, win with my Original Oratory speech during my first year on the forensics team – all because of the endless support and lifelong relationships I have found at Concordia’s community. I would not have met all the amazing people and truly discovered myself if it wasn’t for these 4 years at Concordia.”

Elementary School

An emphasis on developmentally appropriate environments and situations allows our elementary school students to flourish as they build a solid foundation in the fundamental areas of literacy, mathematics, science and social studies and are exposed to various areas of fine arts and physical education.

Middle School

The middle school years expand upon academic areas explored in earlier years of education, and students are presented with increased expectations for independence, responsibility and leadership, all within a supportive and positive environment.

High School

The high school focus is on providing life experience and a more tailored academic curriculum. Whether pursuing a special interest in science, mathematics, English or the arts, our students have opportunities to flourish. Advanced Placement (AP) classes are offered as a way to challenge our students to excel across disciplines.  

Our 250 graduates from the classes of 2015 to 2017 were accepted to 347 universities in 12 countries and matriculated to 122 institutions.
