How Does A Student Qualify For The Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP)?

Click here to complete an application for the WPCP program.

For the 2022-23 school year, the family income of a student new to a choice program must be at or below the amount listed in the table below for the program the student is applying. If a student is continuing in any of the choice programs or was on the choice waiting list for the same Choice program in the prior year, he or she does not need to meet the income limits. Family income includes the income of the student’s parent(s)/legal guardian(s) that reside in the same household as the student applicant. If the student’s parents/legal guardians that reside in the same household are married, their income is reduced by $7,000 when determining income eligibility for the program (i.e. married family income minus $7,000 is the income amount married families compare to the tables below). Family size includes parents/legal guardians and their children by birth, marriage or adoption that reside in the same household as the student applicant.

Families with incomes below 220% of the federal poverty level are eligible to apply for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program.
