The Wisconsin and Milwaukee Parental Choice Programs were created to give families a greater choice in their children’s education. Finances don’t have to decide where your children are able to go to school. Through the Choice programs, families are able to send their children to the private school of their choice — at no cost to the family.
MILWAUKEE PARENTAL CHOICE PROGRAM
The Milwaukee Parental Choice Program is a unique opportunity for families of lower incomes to select a private education for their students. To qualify for Milwaukee Choice, families must be city of Milwaukee residents and have a combined household income at or below 300% of the poverty level.
WISCONSIN PARENTAL CHOICE PROGRAM
The Wisconsin Parental Choice program mitigates the city of Milwaukee boundaries. There are family income guidelines. When eligible, this program pays all school tuition and fees — making Catholic education a viable choice for all families.
