Students are instructed and guided in the doctrine of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
The curriculum is focused on: seeking the Kingdom first, love for the Brotherhood, Kingdom Prep Pillars (faith formation), service leadership, experiential discovery, and excellence. It also includes a mentoring program that allows students to interact positively with younger students, dissolving stereotypes and assisting in the personal growth of the students.
