From the President’s Pen

Dear KML Family,

We have been raised with Christ! What a blessing to know our God is alive and that because he lives, we, too, will live! As we look forward to our seniors’ graduation next month, there is no doubt this simple truth is one we want engraved in their hearts and minds until they reach their eternity with Jesus. With one eye on that eternal future, we pray all our students, inspired by that truth, will live lives of great purpose. No matter what vocation God leads them to, may they always serve with a Christ-like heart and strive to make him known.

Confident in Jesus our Savior,

President Luehring

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.


Tuition Assistance – DEADLINE APRIL 15

The Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School Federation recognizes that the cost of Christian secondary education has the potential of being a challenge for some families. Accordingly, the Federation has established the KML Tuition Assistance Program. The program is designed to help families meet the cost of this great blessing. The monies come from many donors and foundations, including the KML Foundation. Applicants can apply online by going to kmlhs.org/TuitionAssistance. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2024, and the Finance Committee will determine the assistance mid May. Feel free to contact Mr. Jody Hansen, Director of Operations (262.677.4051 x4004; jody.hansen@kmlhs.org), if you have any questions.
