West Lutheran High School is a great place for students to be active and involved, and use their God-given gifts by serving, performing, and competing. These are a few of the activities our students enjoy:
WLHS offers ten varsity sports: Boys' and Girls' soccer, Boys' football, and Girls' volleyball in the fall, Boys' and Girls' basketball in the winter, Boys' baseball and Girls' softball, and track and golf in the spring. Junior varsity programs are offered in volleyball, soccer, and both girls' and boys' basketball and softball. The Warriors are members of the Minnesota Christian Athletic Association (MCAA), which is our athletic conference in all varsity sports. WLHS also competes in the Minnesota State High School League in soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, and golf. Cheerleading is offered during the football season, and Dance Team for basketball is also available.
Focus on the Ministry
There is always a pressing need for pastors and Christian day school teachers. WLHS seeks to encourage and develop students who show an interest and ability in those areas. WLHS has in place a "Focus on the Ministry"' program where students are able to see firsthand what working full time in God's kingdom is like.
Students who enjoy singing may audition for this select choir. The Western Accents perform at area churches, music competitions, in community events and the WELS Choral Festival.
WLHS students participate in an annual imaginary legal case, under the auspices of the Minnesota Bar Association. Students prepare and present a prosecution vs. defense in this Mock Trial program.
As a West Player, students can experience first hand the performance and technical aspects of theater.
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society is a service group for those who have achieved high academic success while at WLHS.
Interested students are given the opportunity to plan and publish the Aegis, the school's yearbook. Responsibilities include design, layout, and writing copy.
Students at WLHS have a chance to participate in student government activities through our Student Council. The Student Council is responsible for setting up activities that enhance student life. Each class elects two members to represent them on the Student Council.
