Not into sports? Terrified of performing on stage? Don’t worry…you can still be involved in student life outside of the classroom! Concordia Academy offers numerous clubs and other extracurricular activities that give students the opportunity to explore interests, pursue academic excellence, and develop new skills. Some are offered year-round, while others are offered for shorter periods of time. Some meet weekly, while other groups gather less often. Interested in a club you don’t see listed below? Based on student interests, we’re always looking for new offerings.
Listed below are some of the club opportunities that are regularly offered at CA.
This is CA’s biblical literacy contest, with a focus on selected books of the Bible each year. The competitions take place during second semester.
Led by staff and/or students, men’s and women’s Bible studies regularly meet during lunch or before school.
CA STUDENT ACTIVITIES BOARD
Students work with staff to plan Homecoming Week, SnoDaze, prom, and other engaging school-wide events.
This club is for all students who enjoy learning about different cultures from all over the world and sharing about their own culture. Members participate in fun after-school activities every year that help them grow in their understanding of different cultures.
At different times throughout the school year, students may participate in 6-8 weeks of games. Teams will play approximately one game per week. Past intramurals have included basketball, badminton, tennis, and volleyball.
Throughout the week, a student-led prayer team lifts up prayer requests from students and staff members. In addition, a student-led prayer meeting is often held during lunch on Thursdays.
Student Ambassadors represent the school at events both inside and outside of Concordia’s walls. If you are well-spoken and eager to talk to others about CA, then this is the group for you! Student Ambassadors participate in events like New Student Orientation, Open Houses, the Beacon Blast, and more. Activities vary from taking interested families on tours of the school and leading group activities for junior high students to working at a CA booth at various fairs or participating in parades in the summer.
SCHOLASTIC ACTION SHOOTING PROGRAM
In the fall and spring, participants learn about shooting sports (trap, skeet, sporting clays, and steel) while having a lot of safe fun! This is an informal group that does not compete as part of the Minnesota State High School League.
The weight room is open to all interested students looking to improve their fitness level. Top lifters compete in the Skyline Weightlifting Competition each spring.
CA’s Worship Team leads the student body in praise and worship songs at chapel services twice a week. Auditions are held in the spring for talented musicians who want to make a year-long commitment to serving God with their talents through this ministry.
Each year, based on interest, other clubs such as Art Club, Games Club, and Creative Writing Club are offered.
