Admissions

Policy of Non-Discrimination

Western Heritage Lutheran Academy reaffirms its policy to admit or enroll students of any race, color, or national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, athletic and other school administered programs.

Admission

We gladly welcome inqueries for the 2018-2019 academic year. Our current students have completed their enrollment and admission is now open to children of the community whose parents desire a Christ-centered, classical education. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
New students are required to meet foreign language and logic curriculum requirements. If Latin or Logic have not been taken, a summer home study course, coordinated through WHLA, may be required to ensure proper placement.
All new students enter Western Heritage Lutheran Academy under a 6-week probation period. This period allows the teacher(s) and administration adequate time to determine if Western Heritage Lutheran Academy is able to meet the educational need of the student. Because of our parochial/private school status, there may arise an incidence of a child with either learning or behavioral problems for which Western Heritage Lutheran Academy is unable to provide adequate services.
A meeting with parents, teacher(s), and administrator shall be requested at any time during this 6-week period if removal from Western Heritage Lutheran Academy is being considered. This meeting will be used to discuss teacher observations and concerns, and recommendations will be given to parents concerning their child.
Western Heritage Lutheran Academy reserves the right to place students in the appropriate instructional level as determined by standardized tests, previous records, and any additional placement tests of ability and achievement, not solely upon the age of the student.

    Tuition Assistance

    Families who need financial aid are encouraged to meet privately with the admissions officer to discuss their needs and to make application for tuition assistance. Any information shared is confidential. Parents of students receiving this assistance are required to help at the school in exchange for this financial assistance. They will indicate on their assistance application the hours and days they are available to help at the school.

    The academy stresses that your childís tuition payment should be viewed as an investment, not an expenditure. Further, a parentís investment of time to their childís education is just as valuable as the dollars put forth. Parents are reminded that tuition payments are to be above their regular tithes and offerings to their church.
