School Choice Open Enrollment - Ends April 15th

The Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) open application period began Monday, February 1. 2021 and will remain open until Thursday, April 15, 2021.


Families that currently have a school voucher, must fill out the application for the 2021-2022 school year. By reapplying for your child’s voucher you are telling the DPI that you want the voucher again for the next school year. If the DPI does not receive your application, your voucher will be given to another family. Current families are only required to provide a residency document. Reapplying for your child’s voucher is simple and quick.


New families that are interested in completing an application have to be income eligible and provide a residency document.


Current families and new families will apply electronically by clicking here.  This link will also take you to information about the WI Parental Choice Program. (WPCP)


WPCP information can be found on our website by clicking here.

Questions about WPCP can be directed to Carol Ellestad, 920.322.8002 or cellestad@smsacademy.org.

Extension of the COVID-19 Federally Funded Relief Package “Seamless Summer Lunch Program” for Kindergarten - 12th Grade - Now Through the End of the Academic Year

St. Mary’s Springs Academy is excited to announce our students (on the Ledge and Virtual) will take part in the USDA’s extension of the Summer Lunch Program.  This Federally Funded Program provides each student a Full Lunch at no charge! 


This Federally Funded Program is an “all in” support, meaning every single student will be granted a Full Lunch at no charge.  If you prayerfully choose to still “pay” for a lunch, donations are welcome in lieu of a Full Meal charge.  Contact Kristin Zitlow at kzitlow@smsacademy.org or 920-322-8006.


Please Note:

The free lunch covers a Full Lunch.  Any food purchased beyond the Full Lunch will be charged as normal. ie: student adds another slice of pizza to their Full Lunch, student will be charged for extra slice of pizza at the normal rate.

  • Highschool (9-12): one main entreé, milk and up to four sides (fruit and/or vegetables)
  • Elementary (K-8) one main entreé, milk and up to three sides (fruit and/or vegetables) 

The free lunch is available to all students in grades K – 12th whether they are learning on the Ledge in person or virtual (see below for information on virtual lunch pick up). Students will still go through the Point of Sale as normal when getting their hot lunch.


Questions?  Please contact Mary Karrmann at mkarrmann@smsacademy.org.
