Admissions Policy - Information
Lutheran High School will consider for admission any student of good character who is in sympathy with the philosophy and objectives of the school and who gives evidence of the ability to benefit from the experiences of the Christian academic environment. Wolf River Lutheran High School enrolls students in grades 9-12 and desires to serve families who want an academically challenging, Christian secondary education for their children. Wolf River Lutheran High School encourages its students and their families to be active in a Christian congregation.
WRLHS accepts students of all Christian denominations and faiths as well as students who do not have a church home. No church attendance is required to be enrolled in WRLHS. All students at WRLHS attend theology classes, chapel services, and other faith-based activities.
Lutheran High School admits students of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality or ethnic origin in school-administered programs.
All new students must go through an application process. Wolf River Lutheran High School tries to serve students of varying academic abilities. However, the school does not have the resources needed to serve students who have significant academic needs. Lutheran High School desires to surround its students with positive influences. Applicants who desire to transfer to Lutheran High because of an extended suspension or expulsion from their present or previous school will likely be denied enrollment. However, each application is considered on an individual basis. Wolf River Lutheran High School reserves the right to accept or decline any student application.
The following outlines the registration process for all students making new application to WRLHS:
A parent or legal guardian must complete an enrollment application, parent and student questionnaire, a financial agreement form, and a non-refundable registration fee is paid.
An application for financial aid may be submitted if desired. WRLHS utilizes a third-party agency, called TADS, to collect and evaluate financial data. There is $34 fee for this application paid by the family directly to TADS. (www.tads.com)
2.The materials submitted will be reviewed by the Administrator.
3.The Administrator approves the acceptance of prospective students. In some cases, the Administrator may choose to defer the decision to a pro tempore Admissions Committee of the Board of Directors as detailed in the next section.
4.The accepted student submits all pertinent medical information to the school including a completed sports physical if participation in sports is desired and submits course preferences for the purpose of class scheduling.
Special education needs, truancy, prior behavioral problems, and any previous legal problems involving the student are to be shared with the Administrator in the application process. Failure to do so may result in the denial of acceptance or expulsion if disclosed after acceptance.
Wolf River Lutheran High School is not equipped to help all students with special academic, emotional or social needs. WRLHS reserves the right to deny acceptance to students with special needs in these areas or to accept them on a conditional basis. Once accepted, if the Administrator determines that a student’s needs, or those of other students at WRLHS, are not being served appropriately, the school reserves the right to deny re-enrollment or to dismiss the student from Lutheran High according to the procedure outlined in this handbook.
