From the President’s Pen

Dear KML Family,

God reminds us in Scripture that Jesus is our Good Shepherd. What a blessing it is to have faith in a personal God who loves each of us deeply and cares for us as his own dear children. As we look forward to the end of another school year, we pray God will continue to shepherd the hearts of each of our students until they reach eternity.

In Jesus,

President Luehring

Each year, all students who would like to participate in the Choice program must apply using the Online Parent Application, available on the https://dpi.wi.gov/choice webpage.

  • “All students” includes both new students and students that participated in the Choice program in the prior year.
  • Parents must also provide the school(s) to which they apply proof of student eligibility including residency documentation and income documentation (if applicable). This documentation must be received by the school prior to the close of the application period in which the application is submitted via the Online Parent Application.

Host an International Student in 2024-2025

KML is seeking families to host international students for the 2024-2025 school year. The number of host families that we have available determines the number of international student applications we will be able to accept. Host families receive a stipend of $800/month to provide housing, meals, and transportation from early to mid-August through the end of May.

KML’s international students are required to have a high level of English fluency, but may not be used to speaking English all the time. Many of them also experience American culture for the first time when they come to KML, and our foods and customs take time to get used to. Host families need to be patient, understanding, and open-minded about the addition of an international student to their family.

Applications for hosting for the 2024-2025 school year need to be submitted by April 25, 2024. If you are interested in serving as a host family, please visit kmlhs.org/hostfamily for more information.
