Concordia’s beautiful, residential campus is set in the tranquil village of Bronxville. The century-old campus features nearly 30 buildings, including original “College Gothic” structures designed by the architect who designed Ellis Island, a world-class worship and performance hall, a state-of-the-art academic center and library, on-and-off campus residence halls, and awesome athletic facilities, all set in immaculately landscaped grounds.
Bronxville is one square mile in size and is home to 7,000 inhabitants including diplomats, corporate executives, bankers, lawyers, and a wide range of other professionals. From the Bronxville train station, it is 30 minutes to Grand Central Station in the heart of New York City.

Over the years the Concordia Covenant has been developed to describe what the college is committed to in the development of their students. The covenant states:
As part of this covenant, Concordia College commits itself to:
- Provide each student at Concordia with experiences and opportunities which foster congruence between values and actions. It is the College’s hope that students will have the opportunity not only to examine their faith and values, but also discover ways of putting them into action.
- Create an environment through which a student’s worldview and perspective are broadened to reflect a world that is increasingly shedding its boundaries. It is the College’s desire that each student develop a global perspective on human issues and concerns and thereby be able to understand and appreciate the rich diversity of God’s creation.
- Equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in their chosen vocation. It is Concordia’s goal to prepare its students for lives of self-fulfillment in service to church and society.
As part of this covenant, the College expects the student to:
- Adopt a healthy sense of respect for self and others. Concordia believes that it is essential that each student recognizes that she/he is a unique creation of God and thereby worthy of self respect. As a Christian academic community, Concordia maintains this sense of respect needs to be extended to others who are also children of one Heavenly Father.
- Practice responsibility. Concordia believes that a mark of a transformed person is the ability to accept responsibility for one’s actions. The College also believe that as members of a community of faith, we must respond to our brothers and sisters in need by accepting personal responsibility in making this world a better place for all of God’s children.
- Develop a sense of reverence. Concordia believes that in this age of cynicism and ambiguity, it is vital for us to have a sense of reverence for God and His magnificent creation. It is this sense of awe and wonder that provides life with deep and lasting meaning.
