Non-discrimination Policy

In keeping with the scriptural truth that the Lord has directed his church to proclaim the gospel to all nations, and, since God has not restricted the ministry of his church to any one particular group, Luther Preparatory School cannot and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, or national/ethnic origin in its admission procedures, educational policies, scholarship grants, and co-curricular programs.

Application Requirements

If you are applying  for admission to Luther Prep you must be a member of a WELS or ELS congregation or must be in process of becoming a member.  By the time you actually attend classes, you should be a confirmed member of your congregation and must have successfully completed the 8th grade.  
After we receive your application, we will send recommendation forms to your pastor and grade school principal (if you attended a Lutheran elementary school). These recommendations, as well as standardized test scores and grades, must be received by the school before a student is admitted. Ninth grade applicants will also need to take the High School Placement Test.  This test is administered on our campus in January and March/April.  For students who are not able to take the test on campus, arrangements can be made to take the test near your home.

If you are transferring into the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade, ask your current school to send your high school transcript to LPS.  Transfer students are not required to take the placement test.

Once you have been accepted, you will be asked to furnish other information, such as health records and various types of parental permission forms.  You will also receive information during the summer regarding housing, meals, and dormitory policies.

All students must be current in their required immunizations or have a signed waiver prior to the start of the school year.

LPS requests that the school be notified as soon as possible if a student who has applied decides to attend school elsewhere.
