Bay City Christian School is excited to announce that we’re participating in the newly expanded statewide Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) — that means children of families who qualify can attend Bay City Christian School tuition free! The WPCP allows students throughout the state to attend participating private and religious schools through a voucher provided by the state.
Dr. Phillips and the School Board are looking forward to how the Lord could use this program to meet the needs of families who are either struggling financially or who could not otherwise attend BCCS.
At Bay City Christian you will find a friendly and safe environment where children can excel and grow academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. Our achievement test scores consistently surpass the 80th percentile, and our ACT scores are consistently above the Wisconsin and the national average. As members of the American Association of Christian Schools and the Wisconsin Association of Christian Schools,
we provide a balanced Christian education that allows our students to compete on a state and national level. We also charter with the American Christian Honor Society so our students are formally recognized for Christian scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
From elementary, to middle, to high school, the smaller class sizes we have at Bay City Christian provide a nurturing and comfortable environment for our students to learn and mature. Learning in a smaller group can build students’ confidence as they become more comfortable asking questions and sharing their thoughts with others. Our highly skilled educators can also work more closely with each student, recognizing their individual strengths and weaknesses and challenging them in those areas.
We are thrilled to be participating in the WPCP in order to provide this opportunity for children of qualifying families to attend Bay City Christian School – Tuition Free! (Through a voucher paid by the state.) We will be accepting applications for students in four-year old kindergarten through 12th grade for parents who wish to enroll their children through the WPCP. The program is currently limited to those families with incomes below 185% of the federal poverty level. In 2016-17, participation will be limited to no more than 1% from any individual school district. If applications exceed available space, the state will conduct a random lottery to determine which families will obtain the voucher.
For more information, you can visit the Department of Public Instruction website http://dpi.wi.gov/sms/choice-programs.
Student applications for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program must be submitted online before April 20, 2016 at https://apps4.dpi.wi.gov/ChoiceParent/. Parents will be asked to provide proof of residency and the AGI from their 2015 tax return. A completed application must be verified by BCCS.
We encourage interested parents to contact the school office for additional information.
(Update: Deadline is April 20th not April 2nd)
