Our School

Mission Statement

Concordia Lutheran School provides families with a Christ-centered, academically challenging education to equip students for lifelong Christian discipleship and serves as a witness for Christ to our community and world.

Schools in The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod serve children in early childhood programs through grade 12 in over 2,000 schools nationwide and 3 schools internationally. Additionally, 10 colleges and universities operate to serve post secondary and graduate students across the nation.

In a Christ-centered religiously integrated curriculum Lutheran schools meet or exceed state standards for high quality schools. Through National Lutheran Schools Accreditation (NLSA) schools complete a rigorous self-study, are reviewed by a team of peers and implement initiatives that provide a continuing program of excellence for students.

Caring, Christian teachers share the Word of God daily with children and families. Strengthening a home, school and church partnership, through an education of the whole child, students are prepared and equipped for a life of Christian citizenship and discipleship.

Lutheran schools continually evolve to meet the needs of students and the communities they serve. Classical schools, academies, robotics, athletics, STEM, service learning, resource programs, drama, fine arts, blended classrooms and virtual schools are the many opportunities that students can explore and experience in reaching their full potential.

In 1858, Trinity Lutheran Church began operation of a Lutheran Elementary School in Peoria.  The school was moved from South Jefferson Street to the site of the present church in 1930. 

Redeemer Lutheran and Mt. Calvary Lutheran established day schools at their churches in 1953 and 1955 respectively.  The three congregations made a joint study of the community, the educational needs of their churches along with new developments in education leading to the formation of the Lutheran Central School Association and to the establishment of Concordia Lutheran School.  The original building was dedicated on August 23, 1959, and opened its door in September, 1959.

Over time, the building has grown, including additions in 1968, 1981, 2003, and most recently 2016. We are currently in the process of a capital campaign to update the building and the front façade.

Concordia offers before and after care through Posh Tots Academy. For more information, please call 309-868-8178.

Does your child love visiting the AR store? Sadly, they are seeing some pretty empty shelves these days. Please keep the AR store in mind as you are out shopping. We would greatly appreciate any donations, big or small, that you can give.
