Trinity Lutheran School participates in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP), which allows eligible students who reside in Wisconsin to attend our school tuition-free. Our school, on behalf of the parent or guardian, receives a state-aid payment for each eligible student. Trinity has participated in the program since 2014.

Enrollment in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program is open February 1 through April 21, 2022.


Student eligibility is determined based on their family’s income, residence, and the student’s prior-year school attendance.
