Four females were part of the first class to graduate in 1926. The name of the institution was changed in 1980 from Alabama Lutheran Academy and College to Concordia College. In response to the needs of church, community, and state, Concordia’s mission is to “provide an opportunity for individuals to obtain knowledge through Christian-oriented educational programs and services in an environment designed to meet their spiritual, academic, social, and physical needs.” This mission was shaped by the inspiration of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), to provide an educational curriculum that helps students grow in Christian faith. The campus ...includes nine buildings, all recently built or renovated. Buildings that were dedicated by the director of missions C. F. Drewes in 1925 are still standing.
