What is La Crosse Promise?

A promise for our community.

La Crosse Promise is a bold two phase idea that will, in phase one, create Future Centers that will prepare young people for education after high school, and in phase two, La Crosse Promise will economically transform our community by providing scholarship funding to families that live and relocate to the heart of the community in exchange for their investment.

La Crosse Promise will lead the economic revival and transformation of the greater La Crosse area.

The Beginning of a
Community Transformation


La Crosse Promise is working to transform La Crosse into an “education community” – a place where everyone recognizes the lifelong benefits of a career-focused education and works together to provide that opportunity for all students.

Future Centers will start that transformation by reaching out to students of all ages and their families to show how important and achievable higher education can be.

Future Centers

La Crosse Promise Future Centers provide a focal point in our high schools where students and their families can have immediate access to post high school preparation and planning resources.

A professional advisor is available to serve students in identifying their career goals and completing the application materials and financial aid forms to pursue their post high school plans. Office hours are scheduled so that students and their families can access these services both during and outside of the regular school day.
