Luther Prep has been such a good experience for me. I have loved every minute of going to school here. When I can in as a freshman I didn't know anyone in my class. It was so crazy how fast I made friends and how quickly we became our own little family. For those of you who don't know much about Prep it's a ministry minded school. The students live on campus in dorms with tutors as their on campus "parents". I think living in the dorms has really helped me learn how to be independent and prepared me for college. Another cool thing about Prep is the diversity. I have people in my class from China, Korea, Canada, St. Lucia, Ukraine, and one of my best friends is from Antigua. Iv'e learned so much about different countries cultures and it's been so awesome to hear how different they're lives are from mine.

Do not prepare you for college at all unless you plan on becoming a pastor and or teacher. There is not a lot of compromises if you are no athletic or musical. The staff heavily favorites students and learning environment is stressful. You get privileges if you are a pastors kid (WELS), which most of the students happen to be. However the people are welcoming and kid once you get there. There are numerous flaws in the academic proportion though. If you are not wanting to be a pastor or teacher I heavily recommend to stay away from this school.
My experience was fantastic! I met so many great friends there and I was able to live with them. All my friends felt like family and every weekend was a blast. We could get enough people together to play basketball, ultimate frisbee, or any activity for that matter. The only thing I wish they had was a swimming pool, besides that the school felt like home.
