    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). Our application can be found at www.YouAreOLu.org, and we begin accepting applications on October 1. We will host a Prospective Student Open House on our campus on Wednesday, November 4, 2015. 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. 4 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. Families may also register for an interview through our online application. Student/parent interview dates are as follows: November 19December 5December 16, and January 14. Admissions letters will be sent following each of the interview dates noted.?

    Q. Do freshmen applicants have to take an entrance exam?
    A. 
    Applicants to Orange Lutheran need only take a placement test. These are offered on January 16, 2016, and January 23, 2016 at 8 a.m. and 1 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 2016/2017 school year, we will again be having a rolling admission, with acceptances beginning in November 2015, to those students whose files are complete and who have been interviewed.

    Q. How many freshmen students will be admitted?
    A. Our 2015/2016 school year was an all-time high of 360+ students. We anticipate the 2016/2017 class being the same size.

    Q. 
    Should my student apply even though we’re not Lutheran?
    A. 
    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?

    Incoming Freshman Resources 
    • Science
      • The challenge test to leap from Biology into Honors Biology, or from BioA to Biology, will require the student to read a portion of a biology textbook and answer questions based on the reading. The test will require critical thinking skills and reading comprehension. Additionally, there will be a writing prompt portion as well. There is no particular topic that a student would need to study in order to be successful.
