FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Thirteen schools within the Lutheran Schools Partnership are now accepting vouchers for the 2012-2013 school year.

The luthern schools partnership held open houses Sunday afternoon, showcasing all 18 of their schools. There are 17 elementary schools, some that include kindergarten, and Concordia Lutheran High School in Fort Wayne.

Mark Muehl, Director of Luther Schools Partnership, says the open house is a great opportunity to take advantage of the voucher program. Last school year, only six schools were involved in the voucher program. Now, twice as many schools are accepting the vouchers. Muehl says he expects enrollment to go up next Fall.

“It's a great opportunity for us as a Lutheran School community to be able to allow kids who otherwise may not have been able to afford it, may not even considered a Lutheran education. The voucher program opens up that door, so we're very excited about that,” Muehl said.

Muehl says the Lutheran Schools Partnership is one of the oldest "districts" in northeast Indiana, with locations in New Haven, Ossian, and Kendallville. He says St. Paul's Lutheran Church and school is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year.
