Wisconsin Parental Choice Program
The Wisconsin Parent Choice Program (WPCP) allows students from low-income families who reside in any city in Wisconsin, except Milwaukee and Racine, to attend any participating private school at no cost of tuition or registration charge if certain eligibility criteria are met.
Student families must apply every year to participate in this program.
Open enrollment starts on February 1st and ends on April 20th of every year. If you would like help signing up for the choice program, you can contact the school office, and we'd be happy to help[ you with enrolling.
"How do I know if my family is eligible for WPCP?"
If you are applying for the first time, there are a few requirements that your family must meet in order to qualify for the program. Here are a few ways to know if your student is eligible to participate in this program...
Meet the Age Requirements
All students must be between the ages of 4 - 20 on or before September 1st. Keep in mind AJA only offers kindergarten for those of age 5 by September 1st. For those applying to Kindergarten, students must be 5 years old; students applying for 1st grade must be at least 6.
Meet Attendance Requirements
Your student must meet at least one of the following criteria in order to be eligible:
- Attended a public school in Wisconsin prior to applying

- Participated in the MPCP, RPCP or WPCP
- Are on a waiting list for MPCP, RPCP, or WPCP
Meet Income Requirements
Your family income must meet certain criteria in order to be eligible. When you apply, you have two different ways to very your family income through the Department of Revenue or through
