Milwaukee Parental Choice Program

Our school participates in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program. Students qualify for the Program on the basis of their residency in the city of Milwaukee and their family income. Families must prove their residency in the city of Milwaukee at the time of application in order to qualify. You can learn more here.
