FRESHMAN ADMISSIONS PROCESS
The Priority Application Period runs from October 5th to December 11th. All Applications submitted after December 12th will be reviewed on a space-availability basis.
Students must complete an ONLINE APPLICATION
along with the confidential recommendation forms from your current pastor, school administrator, and teacher. Students who have an IEP or 504 Plan must submit copies along with their application.
If records are falsified or information is withheld a student’s acceptance will be impacted and the student will be asked to withdraw.
All applicants are required to complete the MLHS Placement Exam. This exam is used to help determine the potential for students to successfully handle the academic requirements of Milwaukee Lutheran and to properly place students into a planned course of study. The exam results also determine those students eligible to take placement exams for accelerated course placement.
There is a $20 cash testing fee collected for each student. Pre-registration is required to take the exam.
There are four separate testing opportunities:
Wednesday, November 23, 2016 - Field House (8:30am-12:00noon)

Applicants may be asked to complete a personal interview with an Admissions representative. Parents are required to attend the interview.
In the interview, the mission and expectations of Milwaukee Lutheran will be discussed in relation to the student’s previous records. Applicants may be denied admission based upon an unsatisfactory interview.
Acceptance and Enrollment
After a thorough review of all the records, students who are accepted into Milwaukee Lutheran will be notified by Mr. Jim Datka to begin the enrollment process.
Accepted students must complete online enrollment.
Students wishing to participate in the Milwaukee or Wisconsin Parental Choice Programs must apply online during an enrollment period (typically February & March).

Students and parents will then meet with a staff member who will help them select courses for freshman year.
Final Review of Acceptance Once Records are Received
Milwaukee Lutheran reserves the right to rescind acceptance if 8th grade is not successfully completed or if there are indications of inappropriate student behaviors.
