College & Career Guidance

Prepare for the next step

What does college readiness look like?

Getting students into the university and program of their choice is important to Lutheran High. We work with students individually to ensure they are prepared for college and adulthood.

2017-2018 LuHi Grads were offered $4,899,700 in college merit scholarships over four years.

Our grads were offered 3xs more merit scholarships than Douglas County public school grads. 

LuHi students' merit scholarship amounts averaged $45,791/student versus Douglas County grads who averaged $16,311/student.

LuHi's ACT/SAT test & college application code: LHS CEEB CODE - 060-417

Advisor Meetings

Each Junior is assigned a one-on-one College Advisor. The Advisor acts as a personal guide to walk with students through the college search and application process. Juniors have 4 meetings with their Advisors throughout the year to discuss:

  • the right college fit
  • finding scholarships
  • application requirements
  • time management and organization when applying for college

Each Senior will meet with Ms. Noffze & their College Advisor 3-4 times during the first semester. Additional meetings will take place throughout the second semester to ensure the path to college is as smooth as possible. During these meetings, you will discuss college acceptance letters, financial aid packages, transcript needs, and any additional questions you have.

College Drive

ACT and SAT test prep is important for getting into the college of choice and earning scholarship money. Freshmen and sophomores take practice ACT and SAT tests each semester.

Juniors get 18 hours of test prep from College Drive to further prepare them for the tests they will send off to colleges.
