SLHS COURSE SELECTION
All students will be led through the process of selecting courses for each semester that they attend SLHS. Students will be advised on course selections that meet graduation requirements and career pursuits. Parents will be informed of course selections and subsequent course selection changes as they are requested. Parents must approve course selections as well as changes prior to implementation.

In most cases, our technical and professional-minded society requires a post-high school education. Most of our graduates will be attending colleges, universities, or technical schools to pursue further education to accomplish their career goals. Students planning to attend college should be sure to discuss those plans with the Guidance Director, homeroom advisors, and parents early in their high school years. For those considering college, the following path is strongly recommended.
|College Prep Coursework||Credits Required|
|Math||3 – 4|
|Science||3 – 4|
|Social Studies||3 – 4|
|Foreign Language||2 – 3|
Jesus gave us all the command to go and preach and teach the Word of God to all people. To some, He has given the gifts and abilities to work full time as pastors and teachers. We strongly encourage our students to pursue a career as a pastor, teacher, or staff minister in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. We offer a course of study to prepare them for Martin Luther College, the WELS College of ministry.

General Education Program
For those students who do not intend to attend college but desire a high school education based on a sound Christian viewpoint, there are a variety of electives besides the required courses available at SLHS. The student probably will choose to take additional courses in areas such as commercial, practical arts or home economics.
