  • Next Steps for New Families

    As placement test results are being evaluated and final grades are being submitted to CPS, we are getting closer to beginning our discussions concerning your student's course schedule for the 2023-2024 school year. 
    How will this work? 
    • Step 1: Our Director of Guidance and other administrators will be organizing meetings with each of our incoming students and families to discuss your schedule for the upcoming year. These meetings will be available in person or virtually and will begin in the coming weeks. Priority status for these meetings is for our incoming 9th-grade class and transfer students in grades 10th-12th.
    • Step 2: Upon students completing their "course schedule meetings," communication will be made to assist families in identifying which summer work they are responsible for in the subjects they will be enrolled in for 23/24. Summer work will be in the areas of Math and English.
    NOTE: Final Schedules are not handed out until the New Student Orientation on August 21st.
  • Dress Code Revisions for 2023-2024

    Concordia Prep is implementing changes to the dress code for the 2023-2024 school year. Lands’ End will remain a provider of uniforms for students at Concordia Preparatory School, however, next school year Concordia Prep will allow families the option of using other vendors outside of Land’s End for dress pants and dress shirts.

    *Land’s End remains the sole provider of uniform items:
    • Polo shirts (short and long-sleeve) that include a school-approved embroidered logo. 
    • Sweaters that include a school-approved embroidered logo. 
    • Skorts and shorts.
    Middle School: Middle School dress code remains the same with the option of students going to outside vendors (outside of Land’s End) for dress pants, should they choose to wear them.

    Upper School:
     Upper School students will have the option to use outside vendors for:
    • Pants – students may wear blue, black, tan, or khaki-colored pants.
    • Dress shirts – Students may wear white or powder blue dress shirts. Bowties and ties are optional for ladies and men.
    For Upper School students – please note, Land’s End short-sleeve and long-sleeve polo shirts will be grandfathered in for Upper School students that previously owned them or previously purchased them for the 2023-2024 school year. They will be phased out for the 2024-2025 school year, therefore we ask our Upper School families to be mindful of this transition when purchasing polos.

    Outerwear for All Students:
     All items remain the same. The CPS Boathouse jacket store will open in the summer (parents will be notified via email). Students are also allowed to purchase black CPS fleeces in the fall. A pre-order sale will take place in August – parents will be notified via email. Additions to outerwear include a grey crewneck Concordia Prep Sweatshirt or a blue or black sport coat.

     Footwear for next year will be the same. Students are not allowed to walk on the heels of their Sperry’s and that will be enforced as a uniform infraction next year. 
    Please see attached for photos of “Approved & Not Approved” uniform items.

Also, have the doctor give you an updated immunization summary if your student received new immunizations (required for 7th grade).

  • Schedules and Books

    Schedules will be distributed during the new student orientation night in late August. During the evening, staff members will provide information regarding school policy and practice and other information to help you transition into CPS.

    All students will receive school supply requirements from their teachers on the first day or two of classes. Please come on the first day with general school supplies, such as notebooks or binders, folders, pens, and pencils.
