Children entering Kindergarten should be five years old on or before September 1 of the same year. Mount Olive’s Pre-Kindergarten class is open to children who are four years old on or before September 1.

Placement of students who have been attending school elsewhere will be based on the satisfactory completion of earlier grades. For this reason, parents should bring the latest report card when registering their child in Mount Olive School for the first time.

Children whose parents are members of Mount Olive Church are welcome to attend our school. Children of non-members will be accepted upon recommendation of the Board of Christian Education.  Such approval will be based on class size limits set up by the Board and approved by the congregation

Parents who do not belong to the Wisconsin Ev. Lutheran Synod are encouraged to attend an Adult Information Class so that they can appreciate and support the religious education their child is receiving. Arrangements for the class can be made by calling the Church Office or by meeting with one of the pastors.

Students attending Mount Olive Lutheran School are expected to attend all classes, including the catechism instruction classes for the upper grades.

Non-Discriminatory Policy

Mount Olive Ev. Lutheran School, Appleton, WI admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

School Fee

Members of Mount Olive receive a 70 – 75% discount to the 5K-8 tuition rate. This does not mean that it costs less to educate your children. Rather, through their offerings and donations the congregational members at Mount Olive subsidize that cost for member families. As we recognize the increased cost to educate a student in today’s schools, we thank our congregational members for giving offerings to help families receive a Christ-centered education.

Parents should keep in mind the cost to educate one pupil and, according to their blessings, help to defray this cost by the weekly use of their offering envelopes in church.

Listed below are the 5K-8 tuition rates for the 2021-22 school year:

Mount Olive Member Student 5K – 8
1st Child | | $1,910
2nd Child | | $1,585
3rd Child | | $1,235

Due to the uniqueness of an Early Childhood Program, the cost to educate a child and the congregational subsidy is different. Please view the rates below for the 3K/4K Early Childhood Program at Mount Olive for the 2021-22 school year.
