Developing Christian Learners & Leaders in the Urban Community

Lutheran Urban Mission Initiative, Inc. (LUMIN) is setting a new standard for effective, Christ-centered, results oriented urban education in Wisconsin. Under God's provision, we have developed a network of Lutheran schools that shares resources and expertise to create safe, high-quality Lutheran schools focused on educational success, leadership development and spiritual growth. We currently operate six schools throughout Milwaukee and Racine representing more than 1600 students.

Paving a Road to College

We place our students on paths to success and we accept no excuses. We are willing to do whatever it takes to foster educational success, leadership development and spiritual growth in our students. These three foundations begin at the primary level and permeate our school. We teach an accelerated curriculum, in which students work with materials one year above grade level. Our goal is to graduate our students ready for success in the best high schools in Milwaukee.
