Kingdom Prep Lutheran High School is an all-boys school that offers a Christ-centered education for young men seeking spiritual and academic development. It was founded in 2017 and opened in the Fall of 2018 with a freshman class of 54. It now serves 250 young men in 9th through 11th grades and will have its first Senior class in the 2021-2022 school year. The school is an answer to meeting the growing demand for quality Lutheran High School education among urban Milwaukee school families, as Wisconsin Lutheran High School and Milwaukee Lutheran High School are forced to turn down hundreds of prospective students each year.
