Tim BernerEvery child is precious and unique, gifted by God with insights, abilities, and a deep wellspring of potential. Concordia Academy in Roseville, MN provides the best high school experience to our students with a safe, loving, and inspiring community that encourages the maximization of this potential. Students come to discover that the pursuit of excellence in academics, arts, athletics and relationships not only honors God but releases their God-given potential. At Concordia Academy you will often hear the phrase: Excellence Honors God and Inspires People. Inspired students accomplish great things — often surprising even themselves in the process.

Of course, at the heart of CA is our sure belief that ultimate freedom and inspiration is found in Jesus. He is the One that came that we might have life and have it to the full. At our best, CA's teachers, staff and administration simply seek to be means through which Jesus leads students ever deeper into the rich and full life that He would give. This is our great privilege and joy.

If you are a current student, current family, or alum, you already know that Concordia Academy is an amazing place. If you're just beginning to explore Concordia Academy, welcome! We can't wait to meet you and help you discover all the great things that CA can offer!

Our History

Concordia Academy originated in 1893 as the high school of Concordia College (now Concordia University), St. Paul. In 1967, the Academy merged with St. Paul Lutheran High School, which had originated in 1959. The two schools merged as Concordia Academy at the current site of 2400 North Dale St. in Roseville, MN. Since then, three additional building campaigns have expanded the original building into the beautiful private high school campus enjoyed today.

Since its inception, Concordia Academy has been affiliated with The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and is supported by association churches and schools. However, students come to CA from dozens of churches and schools throughout the Twin Cities metro area.

Concordia Academy has advanced, grown, and changed over the last century, but its commitment to Honoring God Through Excellence has remained consistent. We celebrated our 125th Anniversary in 2018-2019.
