Fox Valley Lutheran High School is owned and operated by a
federation of 40 WELS (Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod) churches
from across the Fox River Valley. Each congregation is
represented in the government of the school with representation on
the school's General Board which meets three times annually.

source income (over 10% of budget) as ways to fund our
Over the last ten years, Federation church support for the
operating budget has reached these support levels.
