Mayer Lutheran High School, a college preparatory school serving the west metro, will host an open house on Tuesday, January 19 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Guests will be able to tour the campus, take part in a panel discussion with current students, parents, and teachers, and learn about the generous financial aid program the school offers. All COVID protocols will be enforced including wearing of masks and social distancing.
Eric Turner, Mayer Lutheran’s Director of Enrollment, will lead a panel discussion on the crucial aspects of choosing a high school. “We know that the four years of high school are four key years in a young person’s life, and this has become very evident during these days of COVID,” he shared. “Too many times, high school is seen as the portal to getting into a good college. We want families to know about the essential elements of a student’s high school education that will be with them for the rest of their lives beyond college and how Mayer Lutheran can assist them in this important time in their lives.”
A panel discussion with current Mayer Lutheran parents and teachers will be conducted as well. Guests can learn firsthand about every aspect of the Mayer Lutheran experience and will be able to ask questions of both current MLHS and parents.
“The panel discussions are always a highlight of the evening,” explained Principal Kevin Wilaby. “They are lively, fun, full of laughter, and very insightful. Our parents who havevisited in the past always share how the panel gave them great ideas for making high school plans for their children.”
“Many families today are looking for educational options for their children in this COVID era,” added Joel Landskroener, the Executive Director of the school. “We have had real teachers, real students, and real school since MLHS opened in August. Due to our large campus, our students are able to practice social distancing all day, allowing us to avoid having to resort to hybrid learning or some other kind of cobbled-together schooling option.”
The school has seen an increase in enrollment over the past three years and anticipates continued growth in the upcoming year.
