School Admissions

Attending Pilgrim

Pilgrim Lutheran School is excited to partner with families in providing an education that is built on peace, joy, hope, and faith.

Pilgrim Lutheran Church owns and operates Pilgrim Lutheran School as part of its mission to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). We value the partnership we have with parents in Christ centered education. “Dedicate a child to the way he should go, and even when he becomes old, he will not turn away from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)


A $100 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of pre-registration, unless you are applying for a School Choice Program*. This amount will be credited to the tuition fee upon enrollment. 

Final registration takes place in August before the school year starts.  Final registration will include setting up a payment plan, signing up for various extra-curriculars and/or sports, and additional options like milk or hot lunch service.

The governing body of Pilgrim Lutheran is willing to discuss further payment options based on need. If this is the case, please speak with Principal Klug prior to registration.

Before/After School Care

Some children like to explore, some prefer to listen to music or talk with their friends. Some enjoy active sports, while others like to quietly create something. We respect these differences and realize that each child has definite interests, likes, and dislikes.

 Therefore, our Before & After School Care program is tailored to the individual interests and needs of school-age children.

The program is open to Pilgrim students ages 3 through 12, and is offered Monday through Friday from 7:00a.m. – 6:00p.m., on days that we have school, from August – May.  Includes before and/or after school care and PM snack.

Program Member Rate Non-Member Rate
Before/After School Care $7.50/hour $9.00/hour
Summer Care will no longer be offered, starting summer of 2023. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Before/After School Fees

This is a yearly fee paid at the time of enrollment and at the start of each subsequent school year. Enrollment fees are paid by any family attending Pilgrim Lutheran before/after school program. Our registration fee is:

  • $50.00 per year for one (1) child
  • $70.00 per year for two (2) children
  • $90.00 per year for three or more (3+) children

It is the Policy of Pilgrim Lutheran Church and School that no member child will be denied a Christian Education on the basis of financial need. If you have a financial need, please contact the principal.

*School Choice Information

Pilgrim Lutheran School participates in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP) and the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP).

Students qualify for one of the programs on the basis of their residency and their family income. Families must prove their residency and their income if they are a first time applicant. Continuing students are not required to provide income documentation. However, they must still apply and provide residency documentation.

All students MUST apply to the program each year. Apply online at during an open enrollment period.

Parental Choice applications are separate from the school registration.

Tuition Assistance: For families who do not qualify for a Choice Program, we encourage you to apply for tuition assistance with Pilgrim & FACTS. Tuition assistance is available to families who need help with tuition, but do not qualify for a School Choice program. Please ask the school office for a Pilgrim Tuition Assistance Application. Once that paperwork is turned in you will receive directions on how to apply online with the FACTS website.
