The high school program integrates a college prep curriculum with a fine arts emphasis. Students take four years of English, History, Mathematics and three years of Science as well as Visual Art, Instrumental Music, Choir, Dance and Theatre. While grades K-8 integrate the themes of U.S. history and World Cultures, the high school weaves its studies through Ancient, World, European and United States history.
Students may prepare for Advanced Placement exams in their junior and senior years that give college credit based upon successful test scores. Concord offers AP course work in English literature, English language, Biology, Physics, Calculus, U.S. History, European History, World History, Studio Art, Art History and Music Theory at various times.
A critical aspect of the curriculum is the opportunity to perform. Since all students take a full arts schedule in addition to a rigorous academic schedule, their performance preparation happens during the school day. Students are involved in many performances throughout the year from choir and instrumental music concerts to dance performances to art shows and theatrical productions. Concord also features after school performing groups including Keramos, the high school dance company, and Model United Nations
High school students take the Michigan Merit exam as well as college entrance exams. Concord’s high school also has a National Honor Society.
High School students participate in the Michigan Merit Curriculum effective with the class of 2011. Concord placed in the top 3% of all High Schools in The State of Michigan that year! Based on the rigorous curriculum since its inception, Concord easily adapts to the State graduation requirements.
