School Notes:

At Milwaukee Lutheran High School, our Christian beliefs compel us to integrate the faith in all aspects of life. We lead by serving, modeling ourselves after Jesus Christ. Because we care, we are committed to the success of all our students. Milwaukee Lutheran offers dynamic programs and instruction to meet the demands of the future.

Milwaukee Lutheran High School has a diverse family atmosphere, with students from both urban and suburban backgrounds.  Many of our students pay for their tuition using a voucher from the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program.  

Our strong academic program can be seen in our ACT scores, where our city of Milwaukee students average more than 4 points higher than their peers in the Milwaukee Public Schools, and our suburban student average equals or exceeds the average score of their suburban public school peers.
