Vision4Life is Concordia Academy’s award-winning, character-building, service-learning program.

The program centers on an intensive two-day experience. On the first day, the female students and teachers participate in a day of seminars, small group discussions, and other experiences designed to help them explore what it means to be a Godly woman in today’s society. Meanwhile, our male students and teachers spend the day serving at a wide variety of service projects throughout the metro area. On the second day, the females participate in service projects while the male students and teachers remain on campus and explore the characteristics of a Godly man. Following these two days, the entire student body reflects on the two days and celebrates the work that God has done through them in a special time of worship.

This opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus and grow in faith is a highlight of the year for many of our students and teachers.

The Character Education Partnership (CEP) named CA’s Vision4Life program a state and national award winner for “Promising Practices” in character education.
