Every dollar you give to support Milwaukee Collegiate Academy has an impact that extends far beyond our school walls.
For our students to be successful, we rely on community and donor support to ensure that our students have equitable access to technology, meaningful learning experiences outside of the classroom and the teaching materials they need to be great. 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.
We were deeply inspired by the Milwaukee Collegiate Academy graduating class of 2017. For the fifth straight year, 100% of MCA graduates were accepted into college and they have earned over $3.5 million in scholarships over the last two years.
Every day we hear stories about how not enough African American high school students are studying science, technology, and math. Well, it is time we do something about it.
It is through gifts like yours that we are able to work towards our mission to nurture scholars capable of transforming their world, by sending them to and through college.
The extraordinary support of our community partners and donors has enabled MCA to implement a ground breaking personalized learning program. This instructional model, usually reserved for accomplished students in affluent neighborhoods, is being implemented with poor, African American students on the north-side of Milwaukee — a city known to have the greatest achievement gap in the state and our school just blocks from the zip code that has the highest incarceration rate for Black men in the country.
Personalized learning at MCA has helped remove the perceived boundaries that confine so many of our students to their neighborhoods and prevents them from exploring and participating in the cultural life of our city. Our students were inspired to see themselves as future college students capable of going to and through college.
Discover how MCA’s groundbreaking Personalized Learning program earned results in its first year:
MCA will expand the instructional model to 10th grade for the 2017-18 school year and add a grade level every year until our school fully immersed in this personalized learning model.
To sustain this model we need your help.
Please join MCA scholars in changing their world by donating to MCA’s Legacy and Vision Fund. MCA is dedicated to closing the achievement gap, and opening the door of opportunity to students in the City of Milwaukee by giving them an excellent education that they deserve.
