To become a Red Knight you need both Academic Acceptance and a Financial Plan.  
ALL steps below must be completed for your child to attend to attend Milwaukee Lutheran High School.
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. 

Class of 2024:   While we are still accepting applications, please note that we have a wait-list for the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP).
Class of 2025: The admissions process will start in late September 2020.  Please check back for more details at that time.  



ALL Steps below must be completed for your child to attend.

      In addition to applying online in TADS you must provide academic transcripts, attendance records, AND discipline log from previous high schools attended.
