Admissions Process

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 (On Hold until Semester Two, 2021)

We do recommend that you try to come and shadow at LHS. Unfortunately, this first semester of 2020, we are not able to host shadows as guests all day. :-( Stay tuned - as soon as we are able, we will welcome you back in. We anticipate being able to do so beginning in early 2021.
[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 2020-2021 school year only.
~ Applications for 2021-2022 open December 1, 2020. Please note that we will begin our interviews in January 2021.
~ 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. All new student applicants' Enrollment fee will be $100.
 

STEP FIVE: 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 open in January. 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. Please know that beginning the Financial Aid process early (beginning in January) is very beneficial.

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, or those who enroll after Course Selection Night will select courses with Mrs. Brock on an individual basis.


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, option 3.
