Congratulations Class of 2018!

On June 1st, our Concordia community celebrated and commenced our second graduating class, consisting of nine seniors and two honorary graduates. Amongst the speakers for this commencement ceremony were Mikayla as the elected student representative, Stephen Conroy for the commencement address, and Dr. Sharon Voss, who provided the blessing for the students. We are excited to see where these student’s dreams take them in the coming years. Congratulations Class of 2018!


Among the 11 of us sitting here before you, there are potential scientists, politicians, actors, economists, teachers, businessmen, architects, astronauts. Each one of us has a dream, something we are aspiring for… Today, for us, it’s just the end of the beginning. There’s a whole world waiting for us outside these walls and, as we stand on the edge of that cliff preparing to jump into the unknown, let your hopes and your dreams be your wings.

First LEED Certified Green Campus in Vietnam

We are very excited to announce Concordia as the first school in Vietnam to achieve LEED Silver status. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and the most widely used green building rating system in the world.

Being a global citizen is a core value at Concordia, so we are very proud to be the only school - and one of only a handful of buildings in Vietnam - to be called a “Green” building.

Concordia Academics- Test Scores

Concordia prides ourselves on elite academics.  The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and the SAT and PSAT results, are strong indicators which chart our academic success.

The MAP test is taken by most international schools in the world, as well as some Vietnamese schools.  As the name indicates, it is used to measure a school’s overall academic progress.

As these comparative tables show, Concordia consistently tests far above the Hanoi average in the MAP.

MAP results also help us identify specific areas, class by class and student by student, where we are excelling and areas in which we can improve, making it an excellent curriculum tool for shaping Concordia’s overall learning strategies.

Concordia students who have taken the SAT exam have scored exceptionally well compared to global averages.

​Concordia - Phase 2

To support Concordia’s long-term growth and continue our commitment to providing a world-class elite high school education in Hanoi, we break ground on March 1, 2018 on our new high school facility. This 5-storey, (approx. 8300 sqm), building will continue to enhance and develop our overall program.

The first floor is designed for and dedicated to the fine arts and student services.  Art studios with supporting space will allow students to design and develop their passions for the fine arts in painting, sculpting, drawing, and creating. A black box theater, music classrooms for both choral and instrumental groups and individual and small group practice facilities will enhance our performing arts program.   

The first floor will feature a large coffee house atmosphere with space for high school students to collaborate and work with faculty and staff.  A college counseling center and the admissions office will move to the new building.

The second floor will focus on a second gymnasium, locker rooms, a fitness center, and a dance studio.  

The third and fourth floors will have classrooms and lab spaces, which will promote the school’s applied learning programs. The fourth floor will also have an outdoor garden area for students and staff to enjoy the outdoors.  

The fifth floor will be finished at a later date based upon the specific needs of the school.

The entire facility has been designed to promote energy efficiency and provide students with opportunities to learn how buildings work, and we aim to be LEED silver compliant - making it one of Vietnam’s few “green” buildings.

Most importantly, we are working closely with both the construction team and Van Tri Golf Course management to keep the existing school area free of dust and debris, by implementing proper dust barriers, wetting techniques, and other environmentally-appropriate methods to reduce impact on surrounding land and air.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2018 and the school plans to start using the space at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year.  

The high school students (grades 9-12) will move into the new space and the middle school students will expand on the third floor of the current building.  

We look forward to celebrating and sharing this new world-class facility with you!
