I have a child currently in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) at Saint Lucas, and another child is currently in 8th grade. Will sibling preference be given to my 8th grade child?

If your current 8th-grade child is not in the WPCP at their current school, please note you are required to provide both income and residency eligibility. If your 8th grade child is eligible for the WPCP, there is the possibility for Sibling Preference if we are provided adequate WPCP seats. The DPI determines the number of seats we are allotted.

Why am I asked to provide last year’s taxes or W-2(s) if income is not required for eligibility for the Choice Program I am applying to?

As a private school participating in the Private School Choice Programs, the school is allowed to obtain your prior year tax return, or W-2(s) to determine which income category you are in. What this means is if your family income qualifies for the *Choice Program you are applying to, but exceeds 220% the federal poverty level, schools are permitted to charge tuition per state law in addition to the voucher amount the school receives. This is called Category 2 tuition.

My child is currently in the Choice Program at another school. If I prove residency to Saint Lucas, will they automatically receive a Choice seat?

Once a Continuing Choice student leaves their current school, they are not automatically offered a returning Choice seat at the new Choice school you are applying to. An eligible Continuing Choice student at a new school, may be subject to the random lottery drawing, and either be selected or put onto a wait list, if there are more applicants than Choice seats available.
