The following documents and information must be used if a child would like to apply to the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP), Racine Parental Choice Program (RPCP) or the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP). All applicants to the MPCP and RPCP must complete a paper student application.
Determination of which program a student is eligible for is based on where in Wisconsin a student resides. If a student resides in the City of Milwaukee, they are eligible to apply to the MPCP. If a student resides in the Racine Unified School District, they are eligible to apply to the RPCP. If a student resides outside of the City of Milwaukee and the Racine Unified school district, they are eligible to apply to the WPCP. Additionally, applicants may be required to meet income and age requirements. See the Frequently Asked Questions below for additional information on program requirements.
