The open application period for the statewide Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) is open February 1, 2024 - April 18, 2024.


If you hope to apply through the WPCP please do so here.




For students selected by the state, families receive a voucher that pays their students' tuition in full.  The State of Wisconsin has three programs that allow eligible students to attend a participating private school in grades 4K to twelfth.  The private school, on behalf of the student's parent/guardian, receives a state aid payment for each eligible student.  

Learn more about the WPCP visiting Choose Your School Wisconsin or the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.


To meet the income requirements for the program a student’s family must have an Adjusted Gross Income at or below 220% of the federal poverty level, with an additional $7,000.00 allowed for a married couple as illustrated in the table below.

Frequently Asked Questions

We encourage you to register for the WPCP early, so there is adequate time to complete the necessary steps to confirm income and residency.  However, the timing of the application does not give the applicant an advantage.  Those who register near the end of the enrollment period have the same opportunity as those who register early. 

Not necessarily.  If there are more applicants for a particular grade level than seats available, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) will conduct a random lottery to assign seats to applicants.  Please see the question, "What happens if more students apply than seats available?" above. 

No, all applicant families must provide two pieces of information to ICA.

1. Proof of residency.  This may be a recent:
Utility bill
Cable bill
Tax bill
Another government-issued mailing
The information provided must prove that the family lives at the location they submitted on their online application.  A detailed list of acceptable residency documents can be found here.

2. The family must document their financial eligibility.  For those using the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) method, this typically means providing their completed and signed tax forms from the previous year to MHCS.  For those using the Department of Revenue (DOR) method, this means providing the Social Security number(s) of the parent(s) during the application process.

Whichever method the family selects, the online application form informs parents what to provide to ICA.

Students in the Choice program are ICA students in every sense of the word.  Families in our school will not know who is participating in the WPCP, and WPCP participants will not know which other students are also part of the WPCP. 

No, the Choice payment covers tuition and education-related fees in full.  Expenses not covered by the choice payment include:

  • Social and extracurricular activities (e.g. athletic fees, movie nights, class retreats)
  • Fees for classes that are not required for graduation
  • There may be other fees for which ICA may charge.  

The above list is not intended to be an exhaustive one.  If you have questions, please contact ICA for clarification.
