"I wasn't originally planning to come to ML. Then I came to the Open House. The vibe of the school was just different. The people at the school really put family and the love for Jesus first and everything else second."


Martin Luther has an amazing group of donors and supporters that give annually to the Spartan Fund. These donors allow families in need to receive financial aid. Martin Luther uses FACTS to assist with determining levels of donor funded financial aid for families.
Please note, this entire process can take up to 2-4 weeks.  Please apply early and give yourself enough time.  The FACTS Financial Aid Application can be completed after April 15th, however, the majority of financial aid will be awarded to those families that meet the April 15th deadline.
Financial Aid Application Instructions
Please visit FACTS to log in or create your FACTS account using your username (email) and self-chosen secure password.  

Required Supporting Documentation to Complete Application Process:

    • Your most recent Federal Tax Return 
    • All W2 statements  
    • A most recent pay stub from each current employer.
    • Most recent corporate/partnership tax return and schedules (schedule 1, Schedule C, E, F, K-1, first five pages of 1120S and/or 1065 business tax returns, if applicable).
    • Documentation for all other sources of income (social security, welfare, food stamps, unemployment, child support, workers compensation, 2021 1099’s, etc.)
    • Outstanding debt (credit card, bank loans, education debt, etc.) documentation reported on application.

A FACTS financial aid application can be submitted with a previous year tax return at any time.  However, the most recent calendar year tax information will still need to be submitted to FACTS by April 15th to verify that award amount. Martin Luther reserves the right to change the financial aid award due to significant change in the financial situation of the family from year-to-year.

Martin Luther High School participates in the State of Wisconsin tuition assistance programs called Private School Choice Programs. These programs allow families who meet the household income requirements to have their tuition partially or fully funded by the state.   Interested families must complete an online application through the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and verify their current income level and residency.  For more information, see our Choice page.


Born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we now have a fund specifically for families in desperate financial situations.  Similar to financial aid, this is donor-funded financial support.  Donors designed this fund to support returning students whose families are experiencing extreme financial circumstances. These are temporary financial awards and do not roll-over from year-to-year.  Please reach contact the Director of Enrollment for more information.  


Beginning with the tax year 2014, the State of Wisconsin has introduced a new legislation (Wis. Stat. § 71.05(6)(b)49), in which private school tuition payments paid on or after January 1, 2014 are now eligible for an annual income tax deduction. Qualified taxpayers may potentially claim up to the deduction limit for each dependent child in grades Kindergarten through 8th and up to the deduction limit for each dependent child in grades 9th through 12th. Tuition claimed must be paid in the tax year in which it is being filed.
For any payments made in the tax year 2022 for the 2021-22 school year or prior, you will need to access a tax form from TADS. You can log into TADS. If you have any questions, please reach out to TADS at 1-800-477-8237.
For any payments made for the tax year 2022 for the 2022-23 school year, you will need to access the tax form from Finalsite (formerly called SchoolAdmin).  To obtain your tuition payments, log into your Finalsite account and click the billing tab.  The tax statement is a link located within the ledger header.
