Any student wishing to transfer to Milwaukee Lutheran High School as a freshman, sophomore, or junior will be considered for admission upon completing the application process. Milwaukee Lutheran does not accept requests for transfer after a student’s junior year, however, in special circumstances a student may appeal for admission. All applications for enrollment must be completed through TADS.



All transfer students must submit an ONLINE APPLICATION along with the confidential recommendation forms from your current pastor, school administrator, and teacher.  Transfer students are also required to take our Placement Test on Saturday, January 21 from 8:30am to Noon in our Study Center.  Cost for the placement test is $20 cash.  Applications must also contain a current transcript, report card, and the most recent standardized test results from their current school. 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.

Admission Interview
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. 
Review of Records

All prospective transfer students will be reviewed by Milwaukee Lutheran administration. That review can include, but is not limited to, the academic, attendance, behavioral, discipline, and testing records of the transfer students from all previous high schools.

A credit review will also be conducted. A student must satisfactorily complete a minimum number of credits per semester in order to be accepted. Milwaukee Lutheran reserves the right to deny the transfer of certain credits if they do not correspond to the Milwaukee Lutheran curriculum.

Acceptance and Enrollment

After a thorough review of all 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 Program would be able to apply online during an open enrollment period.  CHOICE APPLICATION

Course Selection and Final Review

A complete transcript with all grades will be brought to the course selection appointment. Students will meet with a staff member who will help them select courses for the upcoming year.

Milwaukee Lutheran reserves the right to rescind acceptance if new records are revealed or academic performance during the final semester at the previous school is unsatisfactory.
