churches and schools all over the United States and in several other countries. The WELS school system is the 4th largest private/parochial school system in America. GHLS is a Christian school in the Lutheran tradition.

GHLS was first accredited in 2006 by Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation (
(WELSSA) and the National Council on Private School Education (NCPSE). In 2014, GHLS was
re-accredited through the same agency meeting 244 of the 248 objectives, resulting in a 98% passing
