Tuition and Financial Aid

Please see below for more information on who may qualify for this assistance. The deadline to request financial assistance for the 2024-25 school year is Friday, March 1, 2024.

Families may still complete the application for financial assistance for the 2024-2025 school year after the deadline. However, the award will be based on available funds and will be a smaller percentage of the calculated need. Families with special circumstances may appeal to the principal.

If you have questions about financial assistance at St. Paul's that TADS representatives are not able to answer, please contact us.

Tuition Rates

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

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 students new to St. Paul's who qualify may apply for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP)  through the Wisconsin Department of Education.
