Every dollar you give to support Milwaukee Collegiate Academy has an impact that extends far beyond our school walls.

As a City of Milwaukee public charter high school, state funding supports only 80% of MCA’s operating expenses when compared to a traditional Wisconsin public school. MCA relies on individual donations, recurring gifts, corporate matching gifts, in-kind donations, and grants to close this funding gap. Your 100% tax-deductible gift will help us enrich and sustain our public college preparatory high school program and fulfill our mission.
