The state’s three Private School Choice Programs allow eligible students to attend a participating private school in K4 through 12th grade. The private school, on behalf of the student’s parent or caretaker, receives a state aid payment for each eligible student.

The Milwaukee Parental Choice Program, which requires students to reside in the city of Milwaukee, has 136 private schools registered for the 2023-24 school year. The Racine Parental Choice Program, which requires students to reside in the Racine Unified School District, has 36 private schools registered for the 2023-24 school year.
