The time period for 2024-25 tuition assistance applications will open December 1, 2023. The initial deadline to apply is December 31, 2023.
The WLHS Tuition Assistance Program is designed to enable parents to meet the cost of a precious Christ-centered training for their youth. In order to assess the needs of all the families applying for a WLHS Tuition Assistance Grant in a fair and equitable way, the WLHS Conference has contracted with tuition aid data service.

Tuition Assistance is limited. The sooner you apply, the better your chances for getting the maximum amount. Please note, funding is limited, therefore tuition assistance is not guaranteed. Preference will be given to those who meet the application deadline.

List of 5 items.

  • Eligibility

    Parents of incoming freshmen, transfer students, and students who are re-enrolling may apply for a Tuition Assistance Grant.

    For tuition assistance grants to be considered, the following expectations must be met: a) the student must use his/her God-given gifts to the best of his/her ability in all of his/her classes at Wisconsin Lutheran High School; and b) the student must conduct himself/herself in a way that reflects his/her Christian faith.

    Please note: The WLHS Tuition Assistance Committee will be the ultimate decision maker, but their decisions will be based on the information that parents provide in their application. Grants for tuition assistance are determined on the basis of financial need and the funds available for this program.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Who should complete this aid application?
    A: Whomever the child resides with should fill this application out, whether it is a parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle, or legal guardian. There is a section within the application where you can enter contributions from non-custodial parents and relatives.

    Q: Why do I need to input my spouse’s information if I am remarried and they are not legally responsible for my children?
    A: Smart Aid’s calculation works off the total household income, therefore including all income, whether the party is legally responsible for your children or not. Our system, however, does take into effect your spouse’s expenses as well as their income. It is important to list all expenses that are asked of within the application.

    Q: I do not have the required tax documents. HELP!
    A: Include the most recent tax documentation you have available. If you are asked for a specific line from a tax document that you have not yet completed, please estimate the projected amount.

    Q: How will I know if I qualify for aid or not?
    A: We do not disclose information about the results of your application. All final tuition aid decisions, including notification of an award amount (if any), will be made by your school. For the date award notices will be given, please contact your school directly.
