    Admissions FAQ
    Q. When do we start the application process?
    A. We begin the application process in the fall of the student's 8th grade year (for incoming 9th graders). We will host a Prospective Student Open House on our campus on Wednesday, November 5, 2014. Details about the application process will be available at that time, and so will our faculty, staff, and coaches. If you have a current freshman, sophomore or junior student interested in transferring, you are welcome to join us on the Nov. 5 as well.

    Q. What is a rolling admission?
    A. Our Admissions Department currently evaluates prospective student applications based on the date of their interview. Families are encouraged to apply and set their interview as early as possible to insure their applications are evaluated early. We have had several interview nights since November and several rounds of acceptances. We continue to review prospective families based on the date of their interview.

    Q. Do freshmen applicants have to take an entrance exam?
    Applicants to Orange Lutheran need only take a placement test. These are offered on January 17, 2015, and January 31, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. This test is administered for placement purposes only, not for admission.

    Q. When will my student find out if he/she has been admitted?
    A. For the 2015/2016 school year, we will again be having a rolling admission, with acceptances beginning in early 2015, to those students whose files are complete and who have been interviewed.

    Q. How many freshmen students will be admitted?
    A. Our 2013/2014 school year was an all-time high of 360+ students. We anticipate the 2014/2015 class being the same size.

    Should my student apply even though we’re not Lutheran?
    Lutheran High School of Orange County admits students from a variety of religious and ethnic backgrounds.

    Q. Do you offer financial aid?
    A. Orange Lutheran has a need-based financial aid program. Additional information can be found here. Please contact our Student Accounts office at (714) 998-5151 Ext. 667 if you require additional assistance.

    Q. What happens if my student was not able to come to the Open House?
    A. We hoped all prospective students would have been able to join us at our Open House to meet our faculty, staff and coaches and see our beautiful campus. However, we understand that there may be other pressing matters for your family. Campus Tours are available. Please click here to access our online registration form.

    Q. Are there other dates available to visit the Orange Lutheran campus?
    A. Definitely! Orange Lutheran offers tours of its campus on the following days:

    • Monday, November 17, 2014 – 1:15 p.m.
    • Monday, December 15, 2014 – 9:00 a.m.
    • Monday, January 26, 2015 – 1:15 p.m.
    • Monday, February 23, 2015 – 9:00 a.m.

    Q. What is OLu Visitation Day?
