The 2023-2024 school year marks the 50th anniversary of our beloved Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School. As we look to the past, we see God’s hand of blessing and the impact this ministry has had on so many families and students.

In many events throughout the 2023-2024 school year, we will focus on God’s blessings on KML and this milestone anniversary.

This page will continue to be updated with information about KML’s 50th anniversary and related events as it becomes available.

Golden Gala

We invite you to join us for an incredible evening at the 2024 KML Golden Gala! The KML gym will be transformed with golden glamour, not only in honor of KML’s 50th year, but in celebration of 25 years of the KML Auction/Gala fundraising event.

This year you will enjoy a gold-gilded and glittering evening filled with delicious eats, fellowship, and live and silent auctions. In addition, you can pay for the chance to be a participant in the game show The Price is Right, live with host President Jamie “Bob Barker” Luehring.

Your support at the Golden Gala will also help KML share the light of Jesus in two vital ways:

  1. Our primary goal is to raise money for our Let’s Grow Together campaign as God’s blessing of more students has given us the opportunity to, once again, expand our facility and our ministry.
  2. In addition to raising funds for the Let’s Grow Together campaign, a portion of event proceeds will go to our student assistance fund, ultimately allowing more students to attend KML for a safe and Christ-centered education.

2023 Honorees

This year’s President’s Dinner will recognize KML’s Founding Fathers. These men, along with their wives, gave selflessly in the early years to make KML a reality. We thank God for their service, dedication, and commitment.
