Make a plan now to keep a daily appointment with God. 

The enemy is going to tell you to set it aside, but you must carve out the time. If you're too busy to meet with the Lord, friend, then you are simply too busy.

What a great day for parental rights and school choice in Wisconsin! 

What a hopeful future for our children!


As we work toward a significant expansion to Wisconsin's private and religious school choice programs, School Choice Wisconsin has put together the School Choice Toolkit that will help administrators, board members, congregations, and parents in process of applying for the statewide Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP).


The School Choice Toolkit includes:

  • Links to SCW website and the SCW Legislative Action Center
  • The School Choice Toolkit PowerPoint Presentation
  • FAQs for Schools and Parents
  • Tuition Tax Deduction FAQ
  • How to apply to the WPCP
  • DPI and Private Schools
  • WPCP Brochures
  • WPCP Marketing Materials
  • WPCP Marketing Materials in Spanish

To access the School Choice Toolkit:


Click here


You will have to have Acrobat X or Adobe Reader X or later to open the toolkit.


We hope this information will be especially helpful for schools applying for the 2015-2016 school year. School applications are due February 1, 2015. 


SCW staff is available to come to your school to help inform you and your school community about school choice and the application process.  Call 414-319-9160 if you would like a visit from a SCW staffer.


Thank you for all your work for the students of Wisconsin! Let us know how we can help you better serve your community.

LCEFLCEF Take Heart Scholarship

The Take Heart Scholarship was developed for you, our Y.I. Club World Changers, who are high school seniors and will soon be advancing to your next level of higher education. During these times of excitement, anxiousness, and uncertainty, "take heart!" As Christians we cannot anticipate that life will be perfect or familiar, but when we feel that the world has become difficult, take comfort in knowing that our God has overcome it all!

As you begin your new journey, the Young Investors Club wants to assist your transition by offering financial support through the Take Heart Scholarship with up to three awards of $3,000, $1,000 and $500.
