Thank you for taking the time to visit our website today. I know that there are a number of high school options available to you. Thank you for looking at what Milwaukee Lutheran has to offer students that is unlike any other high school.

Your decision in choosing a high school is one of the most important decisions made during the ages of adolescence. The high school years are a time of incredible growth and change - not only physically, but also intellectually, socially, and spiritually. The nurturing and loving environment that Milwaukee Lutheran offers contributes to their development.

While other schools can share their plans in helping students achieve their academic goals, Milwaukee Lutheran can do that – and more! Our administration, teaching faculty, support staff, parents, and students are committed to living out our mission of Sharing Jesus, Shaping Lives, and Developing Leaders each and every day.

The name of Jesus is boldly and passionately proclaimed every day. We are able to witness to the Truth of God’s Word throughout our classes. His work is seen in the lives and through the witness of our students and staff. Our students consistently hear the message that they are completely and perfectly loved by God. They are able to pick up the strategies for defending their personal faith as they leave this school and are confronted by a world that will challenge their faith. At the time when spiritual maturation is most important, our students are able to be surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses that prepare them for the challenging times. That is something that you cannot put a price tag on!

With over 800 students, Milwaukee Lutheran is the optimal size school. We are able to offer a variety of activities and experiences to involve all students. However, we are also able to maintain the relationships of a small school where all students feel a connection to their peers and staff.

While Milwaukee Lutheran is a distinctly Lutheran educational community, students of all backgrounds are welcome and included in our culture. The diversity of our student body is representative of our nation’s racial background and is reflective of the community in which we reside.

As one of the largest and oldest Lutheran high schools in the nation, we’ve maintained and devoted ourselves to Sharing Jesus, Shaping Lives, and Developing Leaders for over 115 years. Just as thousands of Milwaukee Lutheran graduates have experienced in the past, we are different because of the work Jesus does in our school.

Thank you for visiting out website today. Let us know how we can serve you. God Bless!

Principal, Adam J Kirsch

The goal of all schools is to academically prepare their students for the challenges they will face in their future. While that is a major focus of what we do, Milwaukee Lutheran High School is committed to something greater: preparing students for a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. Students have the opportunity to learn the Truth in a diverse environment where Christ is at the center of all our service to others. Experience the difference that Jesus makes at our school.


We believe that:
  • The canonical books of the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible is the true Word of God, without error or contradiction and is the final authority in all matters of faith and life. (John 20:31, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • The Confessional Writings of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as contained in the Book of Concord are the true and genuine exposition of the Word of God.
  • There is only one true God, who reveals himself as Father (Creator), Son (Redeemer), and Holy Spirit (Sanctifier). (Ephesians 4:4-6)
  • All people are conceived and born sinful. Because of their sin they are subject to eternal death. Man is incapable of saving himself through good works. (Ecclesiastes 7:20, Ephesians 2:1, 1 John 1:8)
  • Because of the unconditional love and mercy of God the Father, our salvation has been purchased through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. We are saved  by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. (John 3:16, John 14:6, Acts 4:12, Colossians 1:13-14, Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • Faith in Jesus Christ comes by the power of the Holy Spirit as He works through the means of grace – His Word and the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper – through which the blessings and benefits of Jesus’ saving death and resurrection, namely the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation are offered to us. (Romans 10:17, Titus 3:5, Matthew 26:27-28)
  • Good works and holy Christian living are the fruit of faith in Christ, not the cause of faith or salvation. (John 15:5, Ephesians 2:8-10)
  • Christians are called to live for Jesus, compelling us to integrate our faith in all aspects of life.  In service to our Lord, our primary mission is making disciples of every nation by bearing witness to Jesus Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:15, Matthew 28:19, 1 Timothy 2:4)
