OK - you're starting to see that Lutheran High School looks like a great place, right? Now you're probably wondering how to get started with the process of enrollment. Well you've come to the right place. Let's get started!
STEP ONE: Shadow a Saint (recommended)
Most incoming students of any grade start with a visit. If you've been here for one of our amazing athletic or theatre events, you probably already feel at home here. But we always encourage students to come and experience a day as a LHS Saint. So if you haven't already, please consider setting up a shadow day. You can sign up at our Visit LHS
page or call 317-787-5474. This step is not required
, but we do feel that it's a great way to envision yourself as a student at the school and get to know the culture, the students, and the teachers. We usually strive for shadow days to take place on Tuesdays or Thursdays, but we're happy to work with your schedule.
STEP TWO: Apply online
Complete and submit your application and fee online at this link
. Once your application is submitted, Lutheran High School will request the student’s transcript, attendance, behavior and immunization records from his/her current school. This process usually takes between 3-7 days.
~ We are currently accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year.
~ The application fee is $30.00 and is non-refundable. (payable via credit or debit card)
Lutheran High School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Lutheran High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
PLEASE NOTE: It is the general policy of the school not to accept any student currently on probation with the judicial system and/or who has been expelled from another school within the past six months.
STEP THREE: Admissions Interview
After LHS has received your transcripts, Mrs. Barnett will contact you to schedule an Admissions interview. Typically this interview lasts about 30 minutes and is intended for students, as well as parent(s) to attend. This is a valuable step in the process because it helps us to get to know you as a student and family, and provides you a great opportunity to ask questions and get to know us better. Lutheran High School values the relationships we create with students and families. This is a wonderful starting point.
STEP FOUR: Enrollment
Once students are accepted for admission at LHS, then they are able to officially enroll at the school. This secures their placement in the class and allows us to move forward with scheduling, financial aid, etc. It is beneficial to get started early in the process to save on Enrollment Fees.
Enrollment Fees vary depending upon when you enroll:
December 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017 $100
February 1, 2017 – February 28, 2017 $150
March 1, 2017 and later $200
STEP FIVE: Placement Testing (Freshmen only)
Incoming Freshmen may be required to complete a Placement Test. Since our students come from a variety of schools and curriculums, the Placement Tests assist us in assessing the students' skill sets and helps us determine the most appropriate schedule of classes for the upcoming school year. The test usually takes approximately 2.5 hours. Dates and times will be announced soon.
STEP SIX: Scheduling Classes
Incoming freshmen will attend LHS’s Freshman Course Selection Night to learn about course offerings and select classes for the upcoming year (Usually Mid-April). Freshmen admitted after Course Selection Night will select courses with Mrs. Brock, Guidance Counselor, at a later time.
Students in grades 10–12 who are transferring to LHS will select courses with Mrs. Brock on an individual basis.
STEP SEVEN: Financial Aid
Lutheran High School offers a needs-based financial aid structure. We also utilize Indiana School Choice Scholarships (Vouchers). It is very important that the needs are understood early in the process. Financial Aid applications are currently open. Only families who have a student enrolled at LHS can qualify for financial aid. Once the student is enrolled (Step Four), we will review the financial aid application.
Mrs. Barnett is available to help you with any step along the way. Please feel free to contact her anytime with any question. Send her an email or call her at 317-787-5474 x218.
