About our community:
Our suburban community is nestled between the cities of Elkhart and Goshen in northern Indiana. Unlike other school corporations in our county, our district is not located in a town. We don’t have a mayor of Concord or a town council. Our school district truly is the heart of our community. The members of the Concord community share a common commitment to building a culture of excellence as articulated in our mission and vision. Our area has a diversified economy based on manufacturing, services, and agriculture. The area is particularly known for the production of recreational vehicles and the related suppliers, and the entrepreneurial spirit necessary to respond to swift changes in the manufacturing industry.
About our schools:
Our schools are as diverse as the community in which we live. While we are dedicated to student growth and achievement, Concord students also enjoy opportunities in art, music, physical education, and technology education from an early age. We are proud of the broad scope of services we deliver to our students, including the deaf/hard of hearing program that serves students from across the county, a strong and growing English language learner program, high ability programming, and a variety of beyond-the-classroom opportunities for students in all grades. Our high school and MOVE UP Academy offers dozens of Advanced Placement and dual credit opportunities. Many opportunities exist for students who wish to participate in activities such as athletics, music, speech, theater, and other clubs.
