From the President’s Pen

As we approach exam week next week, our students continue to work diligently while enjoying their time together as a KML family. Each morning as I welcome the students, I can tell they are getting tired (along with the adults around here). Please pray for all our students and, in particular, our seniors as they go through the many emotions the end of a school year can bring. Pray they take the time to enjoy their last days and events and that they continue to encourage one another. God has blessed us in so many ways in what has been a very trying year for many. For that we are so thankful! God’s continued blessings to our entire KML family as we transition to summer soon.

In Jesus,

President Luehring

All classes, with the exception of study hall/commons, will have a test or a meaningful learning experience planned for that period.

*Please note: If your student has Learning Center for their last period, they need parental permission as well as permission from Mrs. Krause in order to be excused.

Host an International Student in 2023-24

KML is seeking families to host international students for the 2023-2024 school year. The number of host families that we have available determines the number of international student applications we will be able to accept. In exchange for a stipend of $750/month, host families provide housing, meals, and transportation from early to mid-August through the end of the school year.

KML’s international students are required to have a high-level of English fluency, but they may at first struggle to communicate. Many of them experience American culture for the first time when they come to KML, and our foods and customs may take them 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 2023-2024 school year need to be submitted by May 25, 2023. If you are interested in serving as a host family, please visit for more information.
