Tuition Assistance at MLHS
MLHS Tuition Assistance Information
2017-2018 School Year

Christian education is a blessing. The 24 WELS congregations that own and operate Manitowoc Lutheran High School have recognized this since 1956. The opportunity to assist families in educating the minds AND souls of their teens is a humbling responsibility and privilege for our faculty, staff, and board.  Thank you for this opportunity!
We are incredibly grateful to our Heavenly Father who each year moves the hearts of alumni, grandparents and friends to donate toward MLHS’ Tuition Assistance Program. This program is designed to help families in need with the financial costs of education. Together with earnings from our Endowment Fund, we are able to make it possible for more families to afford Lutheran secondary education at MLHS.
