Enrollment and Financial Aid
Our Enrollment Process
1. SCHEDULE A TOUR
Click "Schedule a Tour" on the top right corner of the page to request information and set up a tour with the school's principal.
2. FILL OUT AN APPLICATION
Upon completion of the tour, our principal will share our online application for enrollment with you. Once the application is completed with the $20 application fee, the enrollment process can continue. The application fee will reserve your child's spot at Neenah Lutheran School until the next steps are finalized.
3. PLACEMENT TESTING AND/OR RECORDS REQUEST
Upon receiving the application, a placement test will be scheduled for those students entering Kindergarten. For students who have already completed Kindergarten, a records request form will be filled out in lieu of the placement testing.
4. FINAL APPROVAL
Final approval of enrollment will be made by the principal and the Neenah Lutheran School Board of Education.
Neenah Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, calling of teachers, hiring of staff, admissions policies, scholarship or loan programs, or athletic and other school administered programs.
Neenah Lutheran School is a ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church and Martin Luther Church. It is the mission of our churches to reach out with the Gospel to the Neenah community. Because of that mission, it is our goal to make our school affordable for all families. To do this, we have partnered with a financial aid company named FACTS. This company assists us with distributing our financial aid. To apply you will just need to fill out some simple forms provided by Neenah Lutheran or FACTS.
Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP)
Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP)
Neenah Lutheran School is part of the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program! Under this program -- funded by the State of Wisconsin -- parents have a voice in how their tax dollars are spent on the education of their children.
At Neenah Lutheran School, we believe parents are best equipped to decide what school is the best fit for their child. This program allows more families to choose Christian education for their sons or daughters.
Neenah Lutheran School encourages all qualifying families to apply. Please note that only students going into 4K, 5K, first grade, and all students transferring from public schools are eligible.
All families need to go to the DPI Website to apply for the 2020-21 school year. Parent email verification is a part of the application process. It may take 5 minutes to 24 hours for the verification email to be received by the applicant. The application process can be completed once the verification has arrived. Once your application has been entered, the DPI site will list what documentation is needed for you to bring to Neenah Lutheran School for verification.
