Wisconsin Parental Choice Program

St. Ambrose Academy is applying to participate in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP). If accepted, we plan to offer a limited number of School Choice seats to families for the 2024-2025 school year. The Catholic Church supports the concept of parental choice and state subsidies for private education. According to the Code of Canon Law, “Parents must possess a true freedom in choosing schools; therefore, the Christian faithful must be concerned that civil society recognizes this freedom for parents and even supports it with subsidies; distributive justice is to be observed” (can. 797). The choice program will cover the full cost of tuition for families who win seats in the State WPCP lottery.

The open application period for WPCP begins on the 1st weekday in February and ends on the 3rd Thursday in April.

All interested families should file an application through the WI Department of Public Instruction (DPI) within the open enrollment period. Proof of residency and income will be required for all first-time applicants. To qualify, students must reside in Wisconsin but outside the city of Milwaukee and the Racine Unified School District. A family’s adjusted gross income must be below the levels stated in the DPI’s Adjusted Gross Income Eligibility Chart.
