HPCS works hard to balance the goal of making tuition as affordable as possible, with the responsibility to operate the school on sound financial principals. It is our desire to make Christian education as affordable as possible for families who desire a Christian education for their children. Because of this desire, multiple tuition assistance options are available for families who qualify.
COVID-19 and Tuition
We realize that the current situation around COVID-19 may cause temporary or long-lasting financial difficulty for some families. We are aware that commitments made in January for tuition in 2020-2021 may, in some instances, seem outside the range of possibility because of this current pandemic. If you are concerned about affording tuition in the coming school year, please contact our school principal, Dr. Charles Moore, to discuss options.
If you are interested in giving financially in order to help families bridge the gap in order to maintain enrollment at HPCS, please contact our school principal, Dr. Charles Moore.
Wisconsin parental choice program (WPCP)
Families who meet certain income requirements may qualify for free tuition. More information can be found here.
Needs-Based Financial Aid
The HPCS Scholarship/Financial Aid Fund has been established to assist families who need tuition assistance, and is based on household income. HPCS uses FACTS* Grant and Aid Assessment (FGAA) to process all financial aid applications. The FGAA applications can be found here. Please note that FACTS requires a $35.00 application fee to cover the cost of processing your FGAA application.
In order to complete your application, you will need to provide a W-2 and a Tax Return. There is also a section for additional comments. Please include any additional information you would like the Financial Aid Committee to be aware of as your application is reviewed.
*FACTS is an independent, third party company that conducts financial analysis to determine your family’s financial need. HPCS receives a confidential report outlining your financial situation based on the information obtained in your application and supporting tax documents.
Variable Tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities. This program allows families to apply for reduced tuition that is right for their families’ financial situation. This makes an HPCS education affordable to many qualified students who could not otherwise join our school community. A detailed explanation of our Variable Tuition program, along with tuition rates can be found here.
Scrip is simply gift cards/certificates purchased through HPCS at no extra cost to you! 55% of your Scrip profits will be used to pay tuition and fees or directed to benefit another family of your choice. More information on how our Scrip program works can be found here.
Frequently Asked Questions
No. If you are unsure which program is right for your family, complete the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, and a member of the Financial Aid Committee will be in touch with you. You may also call our office (608-836-7170) with additional questions.
It is not possible for a family or the school to estimate the tuition level for which a family qualifies without the completion of the FGAA application. Applications are submitted directly to FGAA, a third party agency. FGAA evaluates the application based on criteria set by the school and makes a recommendation to the schools Financial Aid Committee. Families are notified of the tuition level for which they qualify from the school’s financial office.
Will I automatically receive a discount or aid if I apply for Variable Tuition or Need Based Financial Aid?
Unfortunately, the school is not always able to provide Variable Tuition or full Need Based Financial Aid to every deserving student. We work within the available resources to make Christian education accessible to as many students and families as possible.
Yes. You can apply for enrollment at HPCS here.
Completing an application for Variable Tuition or Need Based Financial Aid does not affect the re-enrollment or admission process. Regardless of financial need, parents should initiate the re-enrollment or admission process as early as possible. Families may apply for Variable Tuition or Need Based Financial Aid through FGAA only after they have applied for re-enrollment or admission to the school. Once you have received confirmation that your re-enrollment (current students) or application (new students) has been processed, you may apply for Variable Tuition or Need Based Financial Aid through FGAA.
If you have additional questions, contact our Director of Admissions.
