Applications periods approaching for voucher program & open enrollment

By  | 

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Starting Saturday, February 1, Wisconsin families can apply for the state’s voucher program.

This school year, Aquinas Catholic Schools in La Crosse have 22 students participating in the voucher program.

Ten are new students, and 12 were already enrolled.

Families with kids going into 4-year-old kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible to apply.

Families must also live in Wisconsin and their income must be no more than 185% of the federal poverty level.

“So it really addresses the families who have the most limited economic means to provide a different type of education that they want,” said Aquinas Catholic Schools president Dr. Kurt Nelson.

Families can apply for the voucher program until April 20th.

Starting on Monday, February 3, families can apply for open enrollment.

Open enrollment goes until April 30.

Families with kids in 4-year-old kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible to apply.
