Wisconsin Lutheran School (WLS) is a school for students in grades K4 (preschool) through eighth grade established to provide high quality Christian education and training. All that we teach is based upon Scripture, which we hold to be entirely the Word of God.
We strive to achieve two objectives. We seek to prepare children for eternity by learning about Jesus and his forgiveness. We also seek to develop good citizens for our community and country. Jesus stated that these are the greatest of all the commandments: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind" and "Love your neighbor as yourself." We seek to instill this in our children by example and instruction. The Lord is gracious to promise that he will see that all other things are added to us according to our needs. (Matthew 6:33)
Wisconsin Lutheran School has been established and is supported primarily by the members of First Evangelical and Epiphany Lutheran Churches. In keeping with the Lord’s directive to let the little children come unto Him, our school welcomes children whose parents are not members of the two churches. Wisconsin Lutheran School and its affiliated congregations are members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).
Since the 2011-2012 school year, WLS has been a participating school in the Racine Parental Choice Program (RPCP). Students who live within the boundaries of the Racine Area School District and meet specific income limits are eligible to receive a voucher from the State of Wisconsin for the cost of their education. Applications begin in February and end in August. Most of the RPCP seats are taken by the end of March. Current income limits and additional information on the RPCP can be found on the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website. or contact the school office for more information.
Statement of Non-Discrimination... Students of any race, color, nationality, and/or ethnic origin are admitted to all of the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally available at the school. WLS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, and/or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and athletic and other school administered programs.
When you become a member of the Wisconsin Lutheran School family, we hope that you come to us with high expectations:
- We pray that you are looking for a Christ-centered, biblically-based education for your children.
- We hope that you are searching for a quality partner in the work of developing your children’s gifts and abilities.
- We pray that you are seeking out a community of like-minded Christians who support and care for each other.
- We hope that you are looking out for a place where you can use your gifts all to God’s glory.
- We pray that you are hunting for a place that is a safe, nurturing environment for your children’s bodies, minds, and (most importantly) souls.
As high as your expectations might be for a school that cares for your children, it is certain that things will not be perfect. Like the rest of the world, sin is a part of Wisconsin Lutheran School. However, we have the ONE solution to sin and the privilege of sharing it. God forgives us for Jesus’ sake. In Jesus, we have been given a new life and are called to use that life to glorify God, serve each other, and proclaim the hope found in the forgiveness of sins.
The Wisconsin Lutheran School Covenant summarizes the expectations of our teachers, students, and parents. We strive to uphold these commitments by the grace of God and through the strength he gives.
