LUMIN Schools is thrilled to open its first school in Beloit, Wisconsin for the 2019-2020 school year in partnership with St. John's Lutheran Church. It will be an honor to serve the families in the Beloit community, providing local children with a high-quality, faith-based education. LUMIN will open the school as part of the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP), which offers FREE tuition to qualifying families. In its first academic year, St. John's Lutheran will offer 4 year-old kindergarten through fourth grade. Each year following, a grade will be added all the way up to eighth grade.
The school enrollment period for participants of WPCP is from February 1, 2019 - April 20, 2019. Students enrolled through WPCP do not pay tuition, rather tuition is paid by the state government. To see if you qualify for the WPCP program, visit the Department of Public Instruction website to see the income limits. Many families are surprised to learn they qualify. For example, a family of five with a household income of $64,724 or less would qualify for free tuition as part of the program. A family of four would qualify with a household income of $55,220 or less.
LUMIN is a new name in Beloit, but it is a well-recognized and respected name in Milwaukee and Racine where it operates a network of five schools. Over the years, LUMIN has built a reputation for top-notch teachers who blend traditional instruction with technology and project-based learning to keep students engaged and excited. LUMIN also focuses on character education, which gives students a foundation to become productive citizens and make positive choices today and in the future.
Each year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction gives each school a report card with one of five ratings, ranging from "Fails to Meet Expectations" all the way to "Significantly Exceed Expectations." We are proud that the most recent report cards rated three LUMIN Schools as "Exceeds Expectations," and two of our schools received the highest rating of "Significantly Exceeds Expectations."
It's our goal to exceed your expectations at the newest LUMIN School, St. John's Lutheran School. We invite you to learn more about St. John's Lutheran School. For questions or to schedule a tour, contact founding school leader Isiah King at 608-346-8411 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
