Fox Valley Lutheran High School in partnership with families and Federation churches, provides students with a Christ-centered education preparing teens for lives of service and for eternity.


SCHOOL NEWS:
    • The second semester began with 648 students. (Last year was 615 students.)
    • Currently, 150 eighth graders have indicated that they will attend FVL next year. Another 50 are still undecided. The Class of 2023 will replace our graduating senior class of 148.
    • The application window for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) opens on February 1 and closes April 20. WPCP offers families the chance to have their student’s FVL tuition fully funded for all four years! Go to fvlhs.org to find easy-to-read eligibility charts. Also this year FVL’s Tuition Assistance program application window will be the same (from February 1 – April 20). Those who don’t qualify for WPCP can apply to this program if there is a financial need.
