Registration forms can be found in the front offices and on this site starting in January. Please return forms as quickly as possible to secure your students seat in their grade. After parents register their child with the school, they can apply for the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP) or Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) on DPI’s website. A complete application for Notre Dame includes:


• Completed online application for MPCP/WPCP
• Proof of residency (for all students). Address must be in City of Milwaukee for MPCP
• Proof of income eligibility (for students new to MPCP/WPCP)


If more completed applications are received than spots available for any given grade level, a random lottery is conducted to determine which child is admitted to the school. If a sibling is currently enrolled at the school, subsequent siblings are granted admittance in their grade, as room permits. A letter will be sent to all applicants regarding their application status and their number on the wait list, if applicable.
