Private School Choice Programs: 2016-17 Student Applications

The state of Wisconsin manages three separate programs that allow eligible students to attend a participating private school. The private school, on behalf of the pupil’s parent or guardian, receives a state aid payment for each eligible student. The three private school choice programs (Choice) are the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP), 
Racine Parental Choice Program (RPCP), and 
Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP).

Student eligibility, which is established by state law, varies for each program. Student eligibility is a combination of student residence, income and prior year attendance. There is also an age requirement that must be met for grades K4, K5, and 1.  For additional information on the programs, see the information below.




Parents or guardians enrolling students for the program should direct any questions regarding the application requirements to the school they are applying to.
