  • MPCP and WPCP seats do not follow a student from one school to another, only their eligibility to participate in the program. Pius XI Catholic High School has a limited number of MPCP and WPCP seats offered each school year, so many students applying for Parental Choice will be placed on our wait list for that school year.
  • Families are required to reapply for their MPCP or WPCP seat every year to verify residency and continue to be eligible in the Parental Choice Program.
  • Pius XI requires each family to complete an Income Tuition Determination Form to conclude if the family will have any tuition responsibility.
