Welcome! To become a Red Knight you need both Academic Acceptance and a Choice Seat or Tuition Plan.  

 The admission process is established to determine whether enrollment at Milwaukee Lutheran is a good fit for the student and for the school. Milwaukee Lutheran accepts and reviews applications from any students who have met the school’s criteria for enrollment. If circumstances exist that would significantly prevent the student from being successful at Milwaukee Lutheran, admission may be denied.
