West Michigan Lutheran High School’s extracurricular activities and organizations are designed to give students the opportunity to learn new skills, engage in activities that interest them, and learn to work together.

The activities and organizations offered change as students’ interests change, but one thing remains the same: WMLHS is committed to providing every student the ability to participate. As a rule we do not have cuts or other non-academic hurdles to participation.

Our extracurricular activities and clubs include both internal and external programs for: Athletics, Drama, Music, Parent Boosters, Student Council, Faith in Full Action (FIFA) Prayer Group, National Honors Society, Environmental Science Club, K-8th Grade Classroom Visits, Science Day, DECA, and Community Service Days

Music & Art

We are frequently asked about the importance of music and art in schools and why the academic classes and extracurricular programs are worth supporting. Statistically, studies have shown students who practice music and art have higher ACT scores, decreased at risk behavior, improved academic achievement, and higher math scores. That’s an excellent reason in our eyes.

Students in the music and art academic classes and extracurricular programs at WMLHS are exceptionally blessed to be taught by acclaimed local professionals. Both Mr. Obe VanderTol and his brother Mr. Johan VanderTol are accomplished, awarded, and recognized in the local arts community.

Obe teaches music and conducts our extracurricular music programs. Under his direction our students have had the honor to sing and perform at many area congregations, organizations, and events. Johan teaches art leads our extracurricular art programs. In addition to personally exhibiting at local high-end art galleries and competitions, Johan is uniquely situated to bless  our students by personally introducing them to the professional art community and events around West Michigan.
