Why Concordia?

Concordia is a great place to learn. Founded in 1926, we follow a standard of excellence in education that is simply unparalleled.

 

Our outstanding faculty take a personal approach to academics by taking the time to get to know you. They’re interested in your success on a personal level – not just as a student. An average class size of 18 ensures you’ll get personal attention from each professor. They’ll know your interests, your career path, where you’re from and more – and you won’t be just a face in the crowd.

 

Success from the Start

Our freshman orientation program, Embark!, will help start your college career off right. Concordia’s faculty and staff will help you clarify your goals, build great study habits and create a degree plan that encompasses your talents, abilities and interests.

Choosing What’s Right For You

Concordia is an excellent choice to further your education, but it’s important to choose a college that’s right for you. Why? Where you go and what you do there will shape the rest of your life.

The classes you take will influence your future career. The activities you take part in will influence your leadership abilities. The friends you make will create a bright social life. And finally, the college experience as a whole will influence the kind of person you become, your values and ethics, and how you make decisions.

The real question is: Who do you want to be?

Steven Dayton


Senior, Biology/Pre-Med

My hometown is Houston, Texas.
As if my academics don’t keep me busy enough, I thought I would fill my spare time with some extracurricular activities at CTX, including Resident Assistant, Academic Coach for Science and Math, and aspiring parish organist.
The highlight of my time at CTX was definitely presenting the results of our Senior Biological Research Project at a Texas Academy of Science Meeting!
I think CTX is unique because the interpersonal relationships that students form with professors. The faculty and staff genuinely care about you as a person.
The professor that impacted me the most was Dr. Stevenson (chemistry) because he has encouraged me to take ownership of my education and perform at my best.
My advice to incoming students is to be prepared to "hit the ground running" on your first day here.
The experiences that I have had in my classes have pushed me to integrate my Christian beliefs into all aspects of my life. This integration has strengthened my faith throughout my experience at Concordia and developed me into a Christian Leader.
