Connecting the Baltimore Lutheran-Concordia Prep Community
September 2017
Dear Alumni of Baltimore Lutheran School and
Concordia Preparatory School,

Concordia Prep’s 53rd school year began on August 28th with great promise and excitement having been blessed with increased enrollment in both the middle and high school. Over the summer months, we completed numerous projects that enhance the campus for our students, faculty and staff, and alumni. This year, we are excited about the additional offerings in our STEAM program including a new Robotics class for middle school and a middle school drama program. Varsity football has returned to Saints Field, and we have added track and field to our athletic offerings. Our growth is attributable to our outstanding faculty, staff, and coaches, but also our alumni, without whose support we could not continue to prosper. I ask for you to stay connected to Concordia Prep. Come and see for yourself the changes on campus. I invite all of you to visit in the weeks ahead at one of our Homecoming events or our Fall Open House. Once a Saint, Always a Saint-- you are part of what makes this a great school!

In Christ,

Brent Johnson
