n the 1980's an inspired group of LCMS (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod) visionaries dreamed of a school environment where teachers, students and parents worked side-by-side toward the common goal of attaining world-class, holistic education in a Christian context; a place that inspired and equipped the entire family to make a true difference in their world. In 1998, a small group of teachers from HKIS came to Pudong to build that school. They brought their experience and excellence and used them to build a school from the rice paddies up–literally. Concordia’s first academic year opened with 22 students and a staff of 14—led by founding Head of School Dr. Allan Schmidt. We proudly celebrated our 20th Anniversary and the growth of Concordia Shanghai in the Fall of 2018 with many community members from past and present on our state-of-the-art campus in Shanghai.www.concordiashanghai.org/@company

Schools are a reflection of the paths they’ve chosen to take. At SAS we chose to believe students can only reach their full potential if they’re engaged, challenged, and inspired not just inside the classroom, but outside as well. We chose to be a not-for-profit, believing students would be better served if we focused on education, not balance sheets. We chose to create a Mission that would not merely be hung on a wall, but would serve as a guiding light to inform our actions every day. And in spite of a history that began 108 years ago, we chose to recognize that while our past can inform, it’s our future that truly inspires. These choices have made our school a wonderful place to learn. I sincerely hope they also make SAS the right choice for you.www.saschina.org/@company
