Wisconsin Parental Choice Program

Your child could attend Immanuel Lutheran School for free with this program. Students in grades 4K through 12 residing in a Wisconsin school district, other than Milwaukee or Racine Unified, may apply for the Choice program. Students new to the program must meet the income requirements. To qualify for the program for the 2020-2021 school year, a new student must have a family income equal to or less than 220% of the federal poverty level income limits shown below. If the child's parents/legal guardians are married add $7000 to each level when determining income eligibility. 

     Family Size         Maximum Yearly Income 

            1                     $27,478

            2                     $37,202

            3                     $46,926

            4                     $56,650

            5                     $66,374

Open enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year will open in February and typically runs until April 20th.  The application and all verification must be completed by this date.  (Information for the 2022-2023 school year has not yet been released.)

Scholarship Program

For our in-house scholarship program Immanuel uses the services of Tuition and Data Service (TADS) to gather information from school families requesting support. 

Where do I get an application? 

  • You will find the application at the website www.tads.com and then select the box in the right corner "Apply for Financial Aid" to begin. There is a wizard that will guide you step by step to what information you will need to provide. Click here for a pdf link for a worksheet that you can fill out ahead of time to allow you to be more efficient when filling out the application form. I would strongly recommend filing this application on line, but if you would like to have a paper application you can contact TADS to have one sent to you. If you would just like to read more about the program you may click on the tab at the top of the TADS page that reads "Financial Aid Assessment". (TADS is available to Immanuel members and community members. Members at St. Luke's should contact the church office for information about financial assistance.)

What is the cost? 

  • The cost of the application and processing is $45. I believe that this is a small fee to receive scholarship money in the amount of $250-$2000 per student. In no way is this program designed to say that we do not want a family to have the opportunity to send their child to Immanuel. If you as a family are committed to Immanuel then we will be happy to work with you to provide a way to accommodate your needs. If you have any questions about this process you can contact Susan Cour, Admissions Counselor, and she will be happy to assist you with this process. You can also contact TADS at any time and they will be able to help you as well.


Year round program

Scrip is a nation-wide, year-round fund-raising program for schools and

non-profits in which merchants issue gift cards and gift certificates at a discount to the organization. We then sell these cards to you at their face value. You, in turn, use the cards in place of cash, check or credit cards to make purchases at the stores.

One-half of the profit is used for various projects at our school, such as buying equipment that enhances our children's educational experience. The other half of the profit is yours and can be designated by you to one of the approved funds listed on the front of the Scrip Order Form, such as your Immanuel School tuition.
