Tuition and Financial Aid
The application period to apply for
Ginny Viner financial assistance is open.
Please see below for more information on who may qualify for this assistance. The deadline to request financial assistance for the
2023-24 school year is Wednesday, March 1, 2023.
Families may still complete the application for financial assistance for the 2023-2024 school year after the deadline. However, the award will be a smaller percentage of calculated need and based on available funds. Families may appeal to the principal for a special circumstance.
If you have questions about financial assistance at St. Paul's that TADS representatives are not able to answer, please contact us.
Fee scale for the 2023-2024 school year
Good Steward Resale Shop Grants
Volunteers at Good Steward Resale Shop may nominate a student for a grant toward tuition at a local WELS elementary school or Luther High School. Grants may be more than $400 for the first child in a family attending a qualifying Lutheran elementary school. Contact Good Steward for details (608-779-9763)
Purchasing Scrip at St. Paul's is easy. A large portion of the earnings may be directed to the tuition and fees of a child or family. Some families have earned more than $500 in a year! Visit us on Wednesdays or Sundays to purchase Scrip. To learn more about the program email Katy Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ginny Viner Scholarship Fund
To help make Christian education accessible for Fellowship families, St. Paul's has established the Ginny Viner Scholarship Fund. Awards are based on financial need, as assessed through an independent company (TADS). The fund is available to members in good standing at area WELS congregations to support the financial obligation for tuition and fees of Kindergarten through eighth grade students at St. Paul's Lutheran School. Unfortunately, we do not have tuition assistance available for non-WELS families or for preschool fees through the church. However, Wisconsin residents in 4K- 1st grade and new to St. Paul’s students who qualify, may apply for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) through the Wisconsin Department of Education.
