At Milwaukee Lutheran, extracurricular activities are an integral aspect of school life because they are a means of developing knowledge, positive attitudes, sportsmanship, and effective human relation skills.
Over 60% of MLHS students are involved in at least one extracurricular activity.
Extracurricular activities are defined as activities that generally occur after the school day is completed. While these activities require as much time, careful planning, and commitment as academic subjects, the purpose of extracurricular activities is to enhance and extend student learning and experiences beyond the academic courses offered in the school. MLHS offers a variety clubs and activities that appeal to students with a variety of passions.
The Art Club provides a safe and fun environment for students to make art with their peers. Students will have opportunities to use their God-given abilities to make artwork of their choice, experiment, learn new art processes such as silk screening, and participate in service projects to benefit others. Contact Mr. Crayton & Mrs. Tennies for more information.
The Business Club is an extension of the Free Enterprise Academy where students meet leaders in the community and learn about how to improve their financial standing for themselves and their communities. Check out the Free Enterprise Academy here.
The Red Knight Coffee Shop is a great way to sneak in your morning coffee and learn how to run a small business. Join other coffee lovers or students interested in business. Please reach out to Mr. Lasley for more information.
At Comic Book Club, join others in your enjoyment of reading and creating comics. Please contact Mr. Dahlke for more information.
If you enjoy competitions, holding argumentative debates, and talking a lot, then consider joining Forensics! No, this is not CSI; instead, you craft a speech to perform in competitions throughout the State whether they are persuasive speeches, poetry slam type pieces, or acting related. It looks great on a resume, really builds your public speaking skills/confidence, and is a great experience! Contact Ms. Ihm to learn more.
Having a successful high school experience is one of our highest priorities at MLHS. To that end, all Red Knights take part in Family Groups. Students are divided into groups (~15 students each) and meet weekly with an upper class student who serves as their leader and an advisory teacher. Student leaders and advisors lead discussions on topics to build relationships with one another as Christ's big family. Families are able to discuss unique topics and ask questions about life or student culture. Families hold each other accountable and push each other to succeed. Click here for a brochure. Please contact Mrs. Tennies for more information.
