Frequently Asked Questions


What does the application process include?

Find information about the admissions process on the Admissions Requirements page.

Each freshmen applicant needs to:

  • submit an online application
  • write an essay
  • take the HSPT test
  • provide the email addresses of English, Math, and Homeroom teachers for recommendation requests
  • send the most recent copy of their transcript

On the application, families will see a place to enter email addresses of English, math, and homeroom teachers. Once they enter the email addresses, requests are sent to the teachers and are submitted directly back to the admissions office. Applicants do not need to collect any paper forms or send the forms to the teachers themselves.

Placement tests are offered once a month from October-February. Find dates of the tests on the Admissions Requirements page of the website. Register for the test by emailing Jodi.Hoehne@lhsparker.org.

What does LuHi cost? Is there tuition assistance or scholarships available?

Find up to date information on tuition here: www.lhsparker.org/tuition-financial-assistance

Tuition assistance is available and given to families on an as-needed basis. As a Christian high school, we do not want money to be a stumbling block for families as they consider LuHi. We encourage any family who is concerned about the cost of tuition to apply for tuition assistance.

Families can apply to the FACTs for tuition assistance between mid-September and mid-April every year. The process takes about a month for most families to upload their tax information, for FACTs to verify the information, and for communication between the family and LuHi to be completed.

Lutheran High School does not offer scholarships. We do not want a student to feel like they didn't "earn" enough to make it into LuHi.

Are there deadlines in the Admissions Process?

Generally speaking, no. We do a rolling acceptance process. This means we accept qualified students on a first come, first accepted basis. The admissions process must be completely finished before we accept a student. In March, accepted families are invited to enroll.

The only deadline is taking the HSPT on one of the offered test dates between October and February.

Lutheran Questions

What is a Lutheran High School?

From Dan Gehrke, Executive Director

A friend of mine once told me, "Lutherans are committed to receiving God's love, God's Word, and God's forgiveness.  We get it. We share it. And we leave the world a better place."

A Lutheran high school has the same mission.  You can find Lutheran high schools all over the country, all committed to the same thing: being academically excellent schools that God uses to transform the lives of others through Jesus Christ.

Jesus said in John 10:27-28 - "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.  I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand."

Jesus knows us.  And that same love and salvation that He extends to us through His death and resurrection is the same salvation that is proclaimed daily in our Lutheran high schools across the country.

Jesus knows us and in turn, a Lutheran high school knows and loves its students. The relationships formed at a Lutheran high school become the foundation for both academic excellence and spiritual encouragement. Lutheran high schools are communities of people dedicated to having a conversation about what God has done for us through His son Jesus Christ.  Those communities are then the perfect compliment to families and churches who value both reaching the lost and raising up Christian kids to become spiritual champions.

And that is why the environment of a Lutheran high school makes an instant connection with Christian families. One need not be a Lutheran to attend a Lutheran high school.  The core tenants of "grace alone," "faith alone," "Scripture alone" found in Lutheran theology and doctrine by their very nature resonate with all people in search of the truth.  They also draw in non-Christians who are seeking answers to the greater questions of life.

Indeed, Lutheran high school communities leave the world a better place.

What is Lutheran High's mission statement?

Lutheran High School is a Christian high school that nurtures academic excellence and encourages growth in Christ.

Do you have to be a Christian to attend?

No. LHS is open to all applicants. However, LHS is a school that is “Christ-centered” in all we do.

Tuition Assistance

Can a student earn a scholarship?

At the present time, Lutheran High School does not award merit-based scholarships other than the valedictorian and salutatorian awards granted to freshmen from Lutheran elementary schools.

Does tuition assistance cover fees?

No. All families must pay the full enrollment and materials fee.

Where does the money for tuition assistance come from?

This may be the most misunderstood concept of financial assistance. No magical pot of money exists for tuition assistance. The money awarded to students and families is an expense line in the yearly budget.

The Ron Brandhorst Tuition Angel Program is then designed to raise the money needed to turn that line item into a completely funded expense. The Ron Brandhorst Tuition Angel Program is the ongoing annual appeal for LHS.

We desire 100% of Lutheran High School families to participate in the Ron Brandhorst Tuition Angel Program, even those who are receiving tuition assistance. 100% of LHS faculty and staff contribute to the program.

We desire even families who are receiving tuition assistance to make a donation to the Ron Brandhorst Tuition Angel Fund. Lutheran High School is a family that supports each other in all avenues of operation.
