This program allows eligible students who reside in Wisconsin, meet state requirements and are selected by the program to attend Catholic school tuition-free. Pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute 115.28 (54m), our schools are required to notify and provide the educational options available to all students who are at least 3 years old, but not yet 18 years old.
