Overview

The Luther Preparatory curriculum is a college prep curriculum. It is specifically designed to prepare our graduates for entrance into Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. For students who do not chose to continue their preparation for the ministry, our curriculum will prepare them well for entrance into the college or university of their choice. 

Students will take a full course load all four years at LPS. Although a cumulative total of twenty-four credits is required for graduation, with the full course load every year most students graduate with a total of thirty or more credits.

The minimum twenty-four credits must include:
  • English - 4.0 credits
  • Foreign Language - 3 credits
  • Fine Arts - 4.0 credits
  • Mathematics - 3.0 credits
  • Lab Science - 3.0 credits
  • Social Studies - 3.0 credits
Students start with Latin 1 as freshmen and then take at least 3 additional years of the same foreign language.
Fine arts includes music and art courses; band, 2 years of keyboard, chorus, and handbells.
In addition, students are required to complete successfully a course in religion for each year of attendance and a course in physical education for grades nine through eleven.
