Parental Choice Program and Tuition

Didyou know . . .

Returning and new families to St. Vincent Pallotti are eligible to apply for participation in Milwaukee Parental Choice (MPCP) OR Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP).

Determination of which program a student is eligible for is based on where in Wisconsin a student resides.

  • If a student resides in the City of Milwaukee, they are eligible to apply to the MPCP.
  • If a student resides outside the City of Milwaukee school district, they are eligible to apply to the WPCP.

Both programs have similar eligibility standards based on family size, income, and residency. The specific facts and figures are available on the below Parental Choice Program website.

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.

If your household income is at or lower than the listed household income guidelines you may choose to place your child in private school at no cost to you:
