About Martin Luther High School

As one of the top Midwest Christian high schools, Martin Luther High School (ML) offers 25 college credit courses and 126 courses that accelerate students to achieve their future goals.  ML was founded in 1968 near the Great Lakes in Greendale, Wisconsin (1.5 hours North of Chicago).  ML is a 9-12th grade boarding and day school with over 600 students.  90% of the students are domestic and 10% are international students.  Our students leave with a world of knowledge and meaningful connections bigger than our beautiful community.
