A Year of Excellence


horeland Lutheran High School has once again earned an Exemplary accreditation standing from the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation (WELSSA) and the National Council for Private Schools Accreditation (NCPSA) agencies. Shoreland earned 96% of the possible 258 points. The process takes about 2 years to complete. First, a team of more than 40 members of the SLHS family conducted a self-study. This study looked at 258 different standards, all of which describe what a quality and effective

Christ-centered school looks like. Once the self-study was completed, an outside visiting team assigned by WELSSA and NCPSA visited the school to validate the findings of the self-study team. Their report indicates that Shoreland is an Exemplary school! We thank the Lord for the blessing of Shoreland Lutheran High School, an exemplary, Christ-centered high school that is designed to Educate, Equip, and Encourage students for lives of Christian service.
