A Simple Admissions Process for a College-Prep Education

Discover a Private Christian High School That Will Help Your Teen Thrive

Everything about parenting teens is complicated, from keeping them safe on social media to figuring out the correct curfew. But Concordia Academy makes high school (and the admissions process) much easier.

We start by surrounding you and your family with a supportive Christian environment that expects the best of your teen — academically, socially, and spiritually. Then, university professors come right to our Roseville, MN, school campus, so juniors and seniors can choose from more than 90 college credits and still enjoy all the traditions and fun of high school. And, thanks to small class sizes, every student is seen, known, and encouraged.

Sound like the right place for you and your family?


The CA Difference

Families from close to 30 different schools choose Concordia Academy for high school each year because they recognize that they don’t have to give up a rigorous education, a biblical worldview, excellent sports, award-winning fine arts, or the extracurriculars they love. They find everything they need here for a well-rounded education that helps them discover themselves and build their faith.

When you ask your high schooler what was the best part of their day and the response is ‘Scripture,’ followed by them sharing the class discussion topic that day, you know that the choice to send your child to a Christian school has been validated. My daughter has been able to excel academically, participate as a three-sport athlete, and develop leadership skills through opportunities provided in class, in sports, and through community partnerships.”

One of the most amazing things that we found at Concordia Academy was the value of dual enrollment in both high school and PSEO at Concordia University St. Paul. Our tuition dollars were paying for both an awesome private high school education, as well as both of our oldest children’s first years of college. Yes…the first year of college done by the time they graduate!

Admissions Process

We’re here to guide you as you start your journey with Concordia Academy. Below, you’ll find the step-by-step admissions process, links to application information, and important dates.


Start your online application

Your online application requires that you include some additional documents, including a letter of recommendation, a report card or unofficial transcript, and a new student information form.


Schedule an interview

We’ll help you schedule a meeting with our principal. During this interview, we’ll ask questions about your teen’s interests, strengths and weaknesses, and future goals as we get to know more about them. 


Begin enrollment

Students who receive an acceptance notification are asked to complete the final enrollment steps and sign a tuition agreement. This is also the time when families will apply for financial aid, if needed. All new students attend a registration night to sign up for classes, as well as orientation in August. Freshmen parents will receive more information about testing, if applicable.
