Application Process

Selection Process at LCMS

Announcements are made two to three weeks before applications are due. Students interested in applying pick up the application from the seventh grade guidance counselor.  After all of the applications have been collected, they are reviewed by the faculty advisory council.

The faculty advisory council will determine membership based on four criterion: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The council will vote in secret on completed student applications.  The Student Application Packet Form provides the Faculty Council with information regarding the candidate’s grades, leadership and service. To evaluate the candidate’s character, the faculty council uses two forms of input. First, school disciplinary records are reviewed. Second, recommendations from the faculty and others are solicited for input regarding their professional comments on a candidate’s service activities, character, and leadership.  These forms and the Student’s Application Packet are carefully reviewed by the Faculty Council to determine membership. A majority vote of the council is necessary for selection.  Candidates will be notified regarding selection or non-selection in writing.

Application Time frame

We accept applications for membership from all seventh grade students in the fall of each year.  In general the applications are accepted during September, exact dates will be available during the fall when students return from summer vacation.
