The open application period for the statewide Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) for the 2023-2024 school year begins February 1, 2023 and runs through April 20, 2023.
Step 1: Online Parent Application
- Each year parents must complete the online parent application.
- A valid email is required. Parents will receive a confirmation email after they submit an application with directions regarding the supporting documentation parents must provide to the school(s) to complete the application process.
- Parents may only apply during the open application period. The open application period for the WPCP for the 2023-2024 school year is February 1, 2023-April 20, 2023.
Step 2: Supporting Documentation
Parents must provide supporting documentation during the open application period, as directed in the online parent application and the confirmation email, or their application is ineligible.
Residency and income documentation can be dropped off at or mailed to the HPCS office or emailed to our Admissions Director. You must submit the entirety of the document.
All parents must provide residency documentation directly to HPCS during the open application period. See allowed residency documents here. Please know that internet bills and credit card bills are not acceptable forms of residency documentation.
Parents of new students must show they are income eligible by either:
Using the Department of Revenue Income Determination method (we recommend using this method);
OR using the Department of Public Instruction Income Determination method by answering a series of income questions in the online parent application.
Income documentation must be directly provided to HPCS.
