During the 2019-2020 school year, Good Shepherd will once again participate in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) and the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP).
This website will be updated with the most current information as it is released by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
As part of the application process, students new to the Choice Program must provide proof of income and residency documentation. Continuing Choice students only need to provide residency documentation.
Open enrollment for WPCP is February 1-April 20. Open enrollment for MPCP is February 1-20 and March 1-20. All required supporting documentation must be received by Good Shepherd during the open enrollment periods.
Good Shepherd was accepted as a WPCP school beginning in the 2015-2016 school year. We are excited to offer the opportunity for families who qualify to receive a voucher from the State of Wisconsin to pay for their children's tuition. We currently have 25 students who are receiving vouchers to attend Good Shepherd.

How To Apply
In order to apply, you will need either your 2018 federal tax return (first two pages of Form 1040; signed and dated) or your Social Security Number. We recommend using the federal tax return method of income verification rather than the Department of Revenue (DOR) method especially if your financial circumstances have changed over the last several years.
After you apply online, you will need to provide proof of residency and proof of income documentation to our office at Good Shepherd. Proof of residency is typically a utility or phone bill. Proof of income is typically your federal tax return. The WI DPI will give you a full list of acceptable documentation.
