From the Office of Admissions
The Concordia Prep Admissions Team would like to thank all of the CPS faculty and staff, Boosters and PTL representatives for being involved in our Open House last Saturday. We hosted 60 families and had the pleasure of showing them around campus and sharing with them more about our academics, athletics, fine-arts, spiritual life and saints culture. Families also had the chance to meet and greet our faculty and staff in our Tent Village on Saints Field. This is where we were able to spotlight and showcase our wonderful departments and all the great things students can be involved in here at CPS. A great event and a great opportunity to continue to share and show all the wonderful things we have to offer here at Saints Country. 

For those that were not able to attend our Open House, we do still have a number of "Virtual Events" that prospective families can be part of. To learn more about those events, please check out our website:
