The LCMS school system is the second largest parochial school system in the United States. Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Jonesboro and Zion Lutheran Church in Waldenburg, both belonging to the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), have made plans to establish a school since their beginnings.
Concordia Christian Academy first began in the fall of 2000 with one teacher and five students. Since then we have experienced tremendous blessings and growth. One of our biggest visible blessings has been the wonderful facility built in 2003. Large classrooms with ample teaching and storage space have allowed teachers to create an inviting atmosphere for their students. Since that time we have been blessed with growth in numbers. Another blessing was meeting the goal of being accredited by the National Lutheran School Association in 2010. We were re-accredited in 2015. As always, we continue the process of self-study and improvement. In 2015, we expanded our curriculum by adding high school grade levels as well as a gifted and talented program for the elementary grades 2-4. We have a teaching staff of 6 full-time and 5 part-time, along with multiple support staff. We will continue to pray for God's blessing as we work to serve him in our school and community.
