We Apply Academic Excellence to Solve Real-World Problems
Concordia’s high school offers a rigorous academic program customized to the student’s individual needs and interests, applying an American-style curriculum to the global perspective of our community.
Just as a student’s education should affect their life, so should their life shape their education. Through offering specialized Advanced Placement (AP) and Dual-Credit courses that cater to the individual needs, we push each student to be actively engaged in their own learning.
The United States AP program offers university-level curricula and examinations to earn college credit, and the program is widely recognized by universities around the world.
Concordia also offers a variety of extracurricular activities, including athletics, music, MUN, Science Club, Math Club, and drama, which spark students’ passions and interests outside of the classroom.
Experiential Learning: From Consumers to Creators of Knowledge
We believe that education is not preparation for life, but a way of life. Concordia high school students move beyond simulations to work on real-world problems in the classroom. We encourage our students to not only study but also contribute to knowledge to their discipline of interest.
Courses such as Applied learning lab and Big Data Analysis allow students to move from “study” to “production”, contributing to knowledge in these disciplines. Our Big Data students, for example, have presented their findings at academic conferences - usually reserved for graduate and Ph.D. students - and even published their work in peer-reviewed journals. From conducting air and water pollutions studies to making their own films, our students get hands-on experience and learn to “think global, act local.”
Concordia also offers internship opportunities for grade 11 students during the end of year period, enabling students to get real-life experience of what it is like to work in their industry of interest.
