Academics


Overview

West Michigan Lutheran is committed to providing a rigorous college-prep curriculum. Our composite ACT score is an exceptional 23.9, substantially above the state average of 19.9. It is our teacher’s passion for working closely with every student that ensures we continually achieve that academic excellence for which WMLHS is known. The results of this focus on academic excellence can be seen each year as our graduates apply for admission to universities and colleges across the nation. Our graduating class last year experienced a 100% acceptance ratio, which is not uncommon for WMLHS graduates.

In addition to the courses required by the State of Michigan, WMLHS also offers Dual-Enrollment and Advanced-Placement college courses. Upon graduation our students have the opportunity to enter college with multiple credits and classes already completed. This benefits not only students but parents as well since there is no additional cost for our dual-enrollment college courses!
