Graduation Requirements
An extensive curriculum is provided for students, which allows for maximizing individual potential as well as appropriately enhancing the skills necessary for success in today's modern society.  While college preparation is the focus of our academic program, our student body size and teaching expertise allow us to provide a variety of elective courses that supplement the curriculum and round out a student's academic experience.
Regardless of the course of study a student selects, N.E.W. Lutheran High School is determined to train every student for effective living in all aspects of life.
College Preparatory
Students earn 1 credit for achieving a passing grade in any given subject for a full year course and .5 credits for achieving a passing grade in any given subject for one semester.  These grades are determined by performance on homework assignments, quizzes, tests, projects, presentations and class participation.  A passing grade in a given course is indicative that the teacher recommends that the student receive credit for that course.  The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) recommends that a student who plans to enroll at a college or university should minimally complete the following credit hours at the high school level from these five academic areas:
English:  4 Credits
Mathematics:  3 Credits
Science:  3 Credits
Social Studies:  3 Credits
Foreign Language:  2 Credits
