Grades K4-8 Enrollment 


Garden Homes Lutheran School participates in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP). MPCP pays tuition for eligible students living in the city of Milwaukee for grades K4-8.   For students who are not eligible for the MPCP, tuition payment plans are available on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis.  Tuition assistance is available for those who qualify.


Garden Homes Lutheran School Choice Enrollment Process

  • Complete the GHLS Online Registration via Gradelink.

  • If student is entering K4, K5, or 1st grade an original birth certificate must be shown and recorded by GHLS

  • Provide up-to-date immunization records.

  • Submit a MPCP application online during an open enrollment period, starting the first of each month, January excluded.   https://apps4.dpi.wi.gov/ChoiceParent/ 


Detailed instructions and information about the MPCP can be found at https://dpi.wi.gov/sms/choice-programs/student-applications


Applications must be filed each year for all continuing and new students.


If new to the Choice program, income verification can be done automatically via the Department of Revenue (DOR) for those who filed a Wisconsin income tax return for the prior year.  Otherwise, the DPI method requires previous year income documentation provided directly to GHLS for verification.


Upon completion of the MPCP online application you will receive an email from Wisconsin DPI stating what specific documents to provide to GHLS within the open enrollment period.


Note that name and address information must match exactly with that provided on the MPCP application.

  • All steps must be completed within the open enrollment period the MPCP application is received. 

  • Within 60 days or prior to the next open enrollment period GHLS will notify you of the status of your application.

  • If more completed applications are received during an open enrollment period than seats available, a random drawing will be held prior to the next open enrollment period.

  • For families not eligible for the Choice Program, a tuition payment plan contract must be signed prior to admission to GHLS.
