Paying for High School

Your child's education and faith are important to you and to us! A lot of care is taken to make an FVL education available to as many students as possible.

Over 40% of our families are receiving tuition help from the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program or tuition assistance. Additional families receive aid from their congregations and extended family. And, that doesn't include other funds that help pay for education like participation in the SCRIP Program, reduced price meals, and the Ladies Guild Memorial Scholarship.

Explore your options and talk to us. We will do what we can to help make this educational opportunity available to your family.

If you don't find answers to your questions, please contact President Jeff Loberger. He's happy to help!
